Gujarat is one of the most economically viable states for foreign students and outside state students. The cost of quality education is much less than that charged by institutions of similar or even better repute in other developed nations.

On average at INR 6,000- INR 12,000 per month (USD 90 to USD 200) one can find a good stay option depending upon one's personal preferences of sharing and single room accommodation and agreeable amenities and services.
