Student Jobs in Australia

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

    Client Testimonial

    MBBS Abroad is a big decision and your success depends upon the honesty of your consultant. It is a long process starting from choosing the right college to reaching there at college door step and finally studying there for next 5-6 years. You are in a new country without many old friends. We were sure to approach a consultant who is based out of our district only so that not only during admission but for next 6 years, we can have smooth interactions. So, we approached GKWorks as they have a branch in Saharanpur. As we anticipated, there are lot of things to be done during admission process that goes for 3-4 months. At every step, it was useful for us to have our consultant who was only 20 minutes’ drive from our home. We were able to discuss everything face to face any day and thus were able to have easy process.
