First thing you need to know is that you need to pay upfront for your foundation course to get your offer letter and visa, that is before you even set foot in Australia.
The cost is about 14,000 AUD per foundation course, and you also need to arrange accomdation before you arrive in Australia. Depend if you want to get share accomdation (Share House), Homestay or YMCA (Youth Hostel). It take about $600 AUD per months until you can find better location and jobs.
Course - ~A$14000 per year
Rent - ~ A$600 per month (Share room)
Travel - ~ A$30-50 per week
Eat - ~A$40 per week (you cook everyday)
Whole year budget is about $A24000 first year
Do bear in mind you can only work 20 hours per week during semester and no limited during break. On average a person earn 10/hr parttime work in Australia (Less if you work in Chinese Restaurant or so) so you earn appoximately ~A$800 per month
That mean for first year, you need to come up with a total of at least A$14000 to cover your expense.
They are pretty much the same, but usually rent is cheaper and travel is cheaper in small city (like Wollongong instead of Sydney, Cairns instead of Brisbane)

If you are interested to study in Nursing and you are aged over 18. We advise you to undertake TAFE courses rather than Foundation course. Both pathways could also lead you to obtain a Bachelor degree. However, TAFE course would train you to be an enrolled nurse after 2 years of Diploma of Nursing.
Also, studying TAFE courses would be cheaper than Foundation.
The pathway for a Form 5 and aged over 18 students:
Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled/Division 2)
Bachelor of Nursing (Year 2)
You could study in cities other than Sydney or Melbourne would be cheaper: Perth, Brisbane, Adelaide.
