Cost Estimates: See the individual program pages on the Australearn website for cost information. The cost varies by Australian university. This is not an exchange program, therefore students pay tuition and fees to AustraLearn. Students do not pay any fees to UMSL for participating in this program. Keep in mind since this is a non-UMSL program, you may use any federal financial aid received through the Financial Aid Office, but UMSL and state scholarships may or may not apply.

In addition to fees through Australearn, students will need to budget expenses for airfare, books, and other personal expenses. 

Use the Budget Worksheet to compare the cost on the Australearn website to your personal budget or living on campus at UMSL.
