When studying at Collins Academy, you will find yourself spending money on a lot more than just the course. Accommodation, food and transport are three of the major money spenders outside of your course.


If you drive a car, petrol and parking expenses can quickly become a burden.

Luckily, Collins Academy is located metres away from the closest bus station, making it easy for you to save money when travelling to and from our campus.


Consider riding a bike as an alternative to driving or taking public transport. Cycling can be a great way to keep fit while getting you around town. If you live relatively close, walking to Collins Academy campus can be a cost-efficient method of transport.


In order to best save money, Collins Academy advises that students:

– Buy generic or home brand products;

– Shop only once a week: the less you shop, the more you save;

– Take advantage of specials and discounts;

– Bring lunch from home, rather than buying food; and

– Avoid shopping at corner stores, petrol stations and other convenience store locations.

– In the event that you are at the Collins Academy campus without food, there are many food options available in the area.
