Additional Costs to Consider:

  • Living expenses will cost approximately $1,000 – $2,000 per month, depending on personal choices about where to live and shop and how to travel around the city.
    • For details on housing options and costs, please see the ALI’s Housing page.
  • Books will cost about $250 per semester.

To apply to the program, you will need to submit a bank statement. The amount required on the bank statement may be different from the amounts listed above.
