WORK WHILE YOU STUDY
Students come to Australia from all parts of the world to study different courses in colleges and universities. It can often be a tough time settling in to a new country with new people. International students are allowed to work part-time( up to 20 hours per week) during the term/semester and full-time during vacations. It is always advisable to obtain a T.F.N. (Tax File Number) as soon as you arrive in Australia as employers will require this in order to pay your salary.
Part-time work usually pays enough to cover your living expenses, however it will not be enough to cover your tuition fees. The majority of casual work undertaken in Australia for students is within retail and hospitality industries (cafes, restaurants and bars).
