Firstly , the program is free for participants , but we do charge a Program Fee of AUD $200 for each program that you may choose. This covers assistance in gathering, collating and submitting your portfolio to our network in China to secure an interview. It also covers visa assistance and an orientation prior to your departure to China. If your application is unsuccessful, we will refund your Program Fee less $50 for administrative costs. You will also purchase your return ticket to China.
Secondly , since the school offers free accommodation and the living cost in China is much lower than Western countries , we suggest you take around AUD $500 – $800 for living expenses .
