Working while you study in Australia:
International students in Australia on a student visa
can apply for permission to work. A student can work
up to 20 hours a week on a casual basis during course
time and full-time during vacation periods if they have
been granted a visa with work rights.
In some cases, family members can apply for permission
to work up to 20 hours a week throughout the year. In
the case of Masters and Doctorate students, family members
can apply for permission to work unlimited hours.
