At Ozford Melbourne we welcome all students from any background into our community incorporated of a full range of backgrounds.
So, if you have been considering coming to join us here at Ozford Melbourne from Thailand, we want to give you a few pieces of advice for your journey over here and how you too can form part of our Ozford Melbourne international community.
First thing’s first. If you are planning on coming to Ozford Melbourne to further your studies you need to consider the difference in the cost of living. According to expatistan.com, Bangkok is 31% cheaper than Melbourne with factors regarding food, housing, clothes, transportation, personal care and entertainment. For example, rent in a downtown area in Bangkok can set you back around $300, whereas here in Melbourne, you may be paying around $900! We always recommend that you fully take into account differences in living costs before making your move over.
Next, you are going to need to obtain a student visa. In order to get this, you will need three key things:
1.Your application to study here at Ozford,
2. Heath insurance (This can vary in cost but is ultimately to your benefit anyway).
3. The visa application form and a payment of THB 13,600 (around $690) necessary to process it.
Once this is done all you need to do is arrive in Melbourne!
The distance from Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, to Melbourne, Victoria’s capital, is 7,368km. That’s around a 9 hour flight. The perfect amount of time for a couple of movies, some food, a few chapters of your favourite book and a snooze.
