costs involved for overseas exchange?

i may be going to wellington in new zealand the next sem, not this coming new sem, so i would like to know the rough gauge of costs involved

i checked for the exact academic period and it's from july to nov for that side so it's like 5 months

i understand that there will bound to be some traveling around to have fun or sightseeing, will such recreation activities cost alot on top of the compulsory costs involved?

Traveling cost will depend on how long you want to travel, how luxurious you want it to be etc.

You can go to the IRO website, click the 'more news' and download the pre-departure slides for new zealand. I think they have some cost estimate in there.

The uni doesn't help you with accommodation one ar?

My father actually want me to go Japan for exchange, as long as below 15-20k can already. Go Japan can practice the language and master it, most wu hua one, compared to going europe, US etc.

i think the most they help is to answer ur queries

1 of the steps involved is to arrange ur own accomodation, whether it's on or off campus

below 20k i believe can go most places alrdy
