Overseas students in Australia are allowed to work up to 40 hours a fortnight during the university semester study periods and full-time during holiday periods. A fortnight is a period of 14 days commencing on any Monday and ending on the second following Sunday. Here is an example of how 40 hours a fortnight is calculated:
Suppose a student visa holder works according to the below table over a four week period after his/her course has commenced: Week one – 15 hours, Week two – 25 hours, Week three – 25 hours, Week four – 10 hours
If you see in the above example the total hours worked in week two and week three is more than 40 hours. Such non-compliance with the work limitation may be subject to visa cancellation. Thus, one must be very careful with the number of hours they spend working.
Australia is currently the third most popular destination among international students in the English-speaking world, behind the United States and the UK. In May 2017, 502,544 international students enrolled in Australian universities, which was 14% higher than the number of international students who enrolled in May 2016.
The highest number of international students come from China and India followed by Malaysia, Nepal, and Vietnam. China alone accounts for around 30% of the total international students in Australia.
Australia offers 22,000 courses at 1,100 institutions with six universities, affordable fees, and cheaper living costs when compared with the UK and USA, without having to compromise the quality of education and living standards, which have fueled its popularity. However, despite the affordability, overseas students in Australia are permitted to work and earn on their Student Visa

Best thing about Vivek Gupta Sir is his selfless counselling. As I am already a BSC/ MSC, he suggested me to go to Philippines as I was able to get straight admission into MD and this finishes my entire course in 4 years flat. In any other country, it would have taken by 5.5-6 years. Ms Kanimojhi in Chennai office of GKWorks was equally supportive in coordination regarding documents, departure and all other formalities.
We live 100 Km’s away from Varanasi. The internet connection in our town is very weak and my parents are not that educated. For us, understanding the word RTGS was also very difficult. Thanks to Amit Pandey Sir, who is Gkworks Varanasi incharge, he helped us to do all small things. Going with us to get forex to helping us doing RTGS for fee payment, he was always there with us. He only helped us to apply for passport online and went with us to passport office Varanasi. Such support at ground level was provided by GKworks team both in Varanasi and Delhi.
My parents were not very comfortable to send me abroad especially my mother as I am the only son of my parents. I really wanted to become a doctor and thus approached Hemant Mishra Sir, director of Bareilly branch of GKWorks. He went out of his way to convince my mother. He would have come 5 times to my home, invited us to his office and home 10 times before my mother was finally convinced. It is only due to Hemant Sir in Bareilly that I am pursuing my course today. I wish GKworks and especially Bareilly branch all the very best to help many more students for their life dreams.
