That means for a first-time student, a $30,000 bill would leave them well-brought up and ready to start their first year at university.
But that’s not all: the average US university costs around $50,000, a lot more than the average $20,000 in Australia.
That makes it a far more expensive option for students who want to go on to study in Australia, say those looking to get into a higher education.
The US and Australia have both introduced tuition fees that range from $8,000 to $22,000.
However, many students still go for cheaper options like Australian universities.
