Georgia’s living expenses

Here, we’ll break down what a comfortable Moderate existence in Georgia will cost you. Following this article, you will have a better idea of how much money you will need to get by in Georgia. It is important to note that the essay is written primarily with international students in mind who are considering a move to Georgia for their education. Let’s go in right now.


During the warm season, international students in Georgia pay an average of $50 a month for utilities (120Gel). And $100 (240Gel) in winter.

Optic Internet 30MB-36Gel (Same in winter)

Water, light, and sanitation cost 44 gel (same in winter)

Gas- 40 gel and about 130 gel in the winter season 

The cost may be higher or lower based on the student’s modest or expensive habits.


Everyone pays 0.50gel ($0.20) for a ticket on public transportation (Bus and Metro). Students with “students cards,” on the other hand, only have to pay 0.20gel ($0.09) for a ticket. Every ticket can be used for 1.30 hours. With the ticket card, a person can get on any public vehicle for free during the 1.30-hour window.

Yandex and Bolt are available in Georgia’s biggest cities for people who would rather take a taxi. A 7km taxi ride costs about 5Gel, or $2. And people who study in Georgia and want to buy a car can do so at a reasonable price.

Tuition Fees

In Georgia, the average cost of tuition for an MBBS (Medicine) program is $6,000 per year, while non-MBBS programs like Business, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering, and Technology cost only $4,000.

Monthly Rent

We advise that students set aside $300–$500 per month for housing in the city center of Tbilisi. And between $200 and $350 for a place to stay outside of Tbilisi.
