If you decide to study in Australia you will benefit from being able to work alongside your study commitments.. A student may work casually up to 20 hours per week in term time and full-time during vacation periods. This is a very attractive opportunity for a lot of International students.

Australia has a good Economy and the majority of jobs are well paid so most students find part-time or casual jobs at some point during their studies.

International students regularly fill positions in the hospitality, retail and tourism industries however in most cities there is a wide range of available positions to suit each students skill set. If you are very keen, punctual, hardworking and a good team member you will get job opportunities.
