Studying abroad in China is relatively inexpensive, much cheaper than studying and living in European countries, the U.S., Japan, South Korea and many other countries. Normally the annual expense is from USD 6,000 to USD 9,000, depending on the location of university. A larger city will cost you more in tuition and accommodation, while a small town or a city in Western China may cost significantly less.
Specifically, the following costs are associated with studying abroad in China:
>> Application fee: USD 90 – 150, normally not in excess of USD 200.
>> Visa fee: This depends on your nationality and your local Chinese embassy or consulate. For instance, the visa fee for a U.S. citizen is USD 140. To confirm, please contact your nearest Chinese embassy or consulate.
>> Travel expenses: Air tickets may be expensive if you are coming from Europe, Africa or America. A one-way trip from the U.S. to China can be USD 600. Flying from within Asia is relatively cheap – students from Korea may fly as cheaply as USD 100.
>> Tuition: USD 2,000 – USD 4,000 annually
>> Textbook: USD 100, which will be charged by the university at the beginning of your course.
>> Accommodation fee: USD 3,000 annually
>> Living cost: about USD 2,000, mainly depending on your lifestyle, though eating out in China is very cheap compared to many other countries.
