    I am talking about people who don't work or who only work part time in a shop? If you want to go to Australia for a year you are going to need at least £10,000 to live on. In places like America you cannot work.

    I just wonder where these people get all the money from?

    Most people do paid volunteering visits to countries, some may get money from their parents and as you stated others earn some money to go to a country not to far away.

    At my University (Newman) I have spoken to our international officer about how people afford to go abroad. Yes, a part of it is about saving up, but depending on the country you want to go to the University may have funds for you to use as spending money. Of course this will require your own researching, but don't feel threatened to go abroad because you think you won't be able to afford it. Come up with a savings plan and talk to your universities international officer. They are normally the people who can help you with the planning side of things. You could even do a placement abroad (if you were going to my uni- don't know about other uni's), and spend a semester abroad, studying and doing your placement. Just don't give up your search- that's my main advice.
