Sydney better than Adelaide for Students

Now, I'm in a difficult situation to make a decision, should I go to Sydney or Adelaide?

Is somebody here that is living in Adelaide and can tell me about the living costs. I would like to compare it with Sydney and try to find out if the fees of 7500 AUD per year are justified that I have to pay more in Adelaide.

Thank you for any advice!!!
I am an Adelaidian for the past 6 years. I love this place but the job market is quite tough. Wages for your part-time work is quite low compared to Sydney. Students struggles here.

If you want to compare the rental, please check the shared accomodations in realestate com au or gumtree com

Hey Buddy,

If you want to live reasonable close to Adelaide, the cheap areas are BlairAthol, Atholpark, prospect (some areas).

Western and northern suburbs are cheaper but no good schools, How old is your son ?

please check the real estate websites., realestate com au

Are you a microbiologist, just curious because I work for SA Pathology.

Sydney of course!! but Melbourne has the lot but what's best is that it is a city to eat, work, play and live in, not just to look at. Sydney only wishes.

Hello everyone Adelaide is indeed better than sydney due to cheap accommodation and better research facilities. Although fee is high in uni but quality of education is very high. Also transportation is easy in Adelaide

In January 2016 South Australia had the highest unemployment rate in Australia. Not much change from previous months/years.

Adelaide was nice for a short holiday, from my experience.

Hi lovepreet - I was very much in same situation like yours. I was a Professional Computing student at UniSA. UniSA is not in G8 (Top Eight), but a member of ATN ( group of 5 technical schools). With all due respect, I will definitely pick Adelaide over Sydney. Sydney/Melbourne is an expensive place compared to Adelaide. If you think you have friends/families in Sydney, you can definitely go there on and off. There are cheap travel packages all year round. Thanks..
