Cost of living calculator

Going to Korea has never been so simple

South Korea might appear at first to be an expensive place to live. But the cost of living in South Korea is completely achievable for those who wish to live and study there – as long as you do some preparation.

Use our cost of living calculator to estimate how much money you will need for your time in South Korea. Note that these are estimates based on averages, and your actual cost of living will depend on where you live in South Korea, the school you attend, how long you’re studying for, your accommodation, your lifestyle, and spending habits.

Please note that the South Korean government recommends students prepare at least 10 million won for every 6 months of study. This budget covers the cost of tuition, accommodation, and living expenses. However, we always recommend students prepare more if possible.
