Question: “What do I need to know about working whilst studying?”
I’ve put together this quick guide for you…
International students who are granted an Australian student visa automatically receive a work visa. This allows you to work 20 hours per week in part-time employment during term time and full time during the holidays.
All people working in Australia have basic work rights. Things you should know:
Depending on where you study, there may be part-time work available in retail, hospitality, sales, market research, office administration, call centres and on campus. Remember, you must have enough money to cover your living costs and tuition fees before arriving to study. Please do not rely on getting part-time work to fund your studies.
Finally, wherever you find work – know your work rights.
