  • Flights to the United States = Varies
  • Housing pre-payment + first two weeks rent = approx $1,300 - $1,400  (this is an advance payment which helps to lower the weekly rent cost and secures housing across the summer + U.S arrivals support)​​


  • Weekly accommodation costs = $TBC (approx $200) USD per week
  • Additional supporting funds between $350.00 - $750.00 USD are recommended
  • As a student on a J1 visa in the USA, it is important to be aware that you will be required to file a tax return at the end of the tax year which runs from January 1st to December 31st.
  • Filing a tax return means providing information about your income, expenses, and other relevant financial details to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the U.S. tax authority.
  • At the end of the tax year, when you file your tax return, you will calculate your tax liability based on your income and deductions. If the taxes withheld from your paychecks throughout the Program are not sufficient to cover your total tax liability, you may be required to pay an additional amount to fulfill your tax obligations. On the other hand, if too much tax was withheld, you may be eligible for a tax refund.
All costs may be subject to change.
