Living costs in Oman depend on the standard of living you want, but in general, you should expect to find Oman cheaper than other Middle Eastern countries. Most expatriates and students will live in Muscat.
Choosing your accommodation is an important thing to get right when coming to study in Oman. Many international students choose to live in a homestay with a local family. This makes it easier to adapt to life in Oman and learn the language.
However, other options, such as dormitories and private flats are available.
One thing is key in all housing though – make sure you have air conditioning.
