Among the top 30 countries for internationally inbound students according to a UNESCO report, India is one of the most economical viable countries for foreign students. The cost of living here is very less as compared to other countries.
In India, many reputed universities offer accommodation to their students within campus. However, some universities do not have this facility. In this case a student has the option to rent a room in a private hostel, rent a room on his own (with or without food facility), or get a serviced apartment on rent. There are various benefits that a student gets in each type of accommodation that he/she chooses. A student can experience a comfortable stay for a month within $160. And you can reduce that by sharing the accommodation with other students.
Average other Living Expenses (in USD):
- Self cooking – $10 to $25 per week
- Eating out – $24 to $70 per week
- Utility bills – $4 to $10 per week
- Public transport – $4 to $10 per week
- Sports and leisure – $7 to $15 per week
As you can see the cost of studying in India is extremely affordable as compared to various developing countries and extremely low when compared to other developed nations such as the US and UK. Moreover, the quality of education has undergone significant transformation and development over the last decade.
