Job Opportunities in Australia

Working part-time on Australian Student visa

Part-time jobs jobs are an excellent way to finance some of your cost during your study in Australia. Plenty of part time jobs are available to international students who want to work during their studies in Australia.

However, students should take some time to look for the part time jobs in the area they want to later on work in. For eg. If you are studying Master degree in Information technology, you should try to look for a part time job related to Information technology so that you gain experience in the area where you want to work later on. These part time jobs will not only serve as a source of income but also help you land a job that is relevant to your studies upon the completion of your degree.

In case you do not find something related to your studies initially, you should take up any part time job that is available and keep on looking for the one that is more relevant to our studies.

Australian student visas usually allow full time degree students (undergraduate and postgraduate) to work up to 40 hours per fortnight in the academic year and unlimited hours during summer holidays. The minimum wage in Australia is currently $15.96 before tax.
