How much could my cost of living be?
This guide gives an idea of the cost of living in a flat of 3 or 4 students in Wellington, in 2012.
|Internet / Prepay cellphone||11|
|Transport (based on 30 day pass)||37|
|Appliance rental, contents / liability insurance||10|
|Snacks / lunches||20|
Bond / flat set up, trips home, clothing, sport, birthdays etc. are examples of expenses you will face on a less regular basis. Remember to make an allowance for them in your budget.
