Working while you study is a great way to gain practical experience and get a taste of the local culture. The Australian international student visa (subclass 500) allows you to work while you study. You should look for jobs that offer flexible hours to balance your study and work commitments.
You can work up to 48 hours every two weeks while studying, and unlimited hours during study breaks.
Student visa holders granted offshore can start working once their course of study begins. However, different work rights can apply. Check your ImmiAccount to find out your visa conditions.
You have the same protections at work as anyone else working in Australia.
