A great place to work
Australia is a great place to work as an international student. You may choose to work while you are studying. This can be an option to earn extra spending money and get a taste of the local culture. Here are a few things to remember:
Work hours: You can work up to 40 hours every two weeks while you are studying, and unlimited hours during holiday breaks.
Workplace protections: You have the same protections at work as anyone else working in Australia.
Minimum wage: You will get at least a minimum rate of pay per hour no matter what job you do.
Strong support: You will find support every step of your journey as a student worker. Help is always available from government and private organisations as well as your education provider.
Ideal work for students
The flexible hours and large number of opportunities in these industries make these ideal for students:
Retail - including supermarkets, department stores, boutiques
Hospitality - cafes, bars, restaurants, delivery
Farming and fruit-picking - seasonal work
Services – childcare, aged care and cleaning
Administration and clerical work
