Most of the students who goes for overseas education like to earn little money for their pocket expenses when they have time after finishing their class works. On the other hand it is not recommended for the students to work full time as it will reduce their learning power also it can affect the local people's job opportunities. For this most of the countries has made a limitation on the working hours of their foreign students who are studying in thier countries. Those students who had violated this student working hour's law will be asked to leave the country immediately without finishing their course.

Australian Government too allows its foreign students to work when they are following a full time education course. Earlier Students paid a total sum of $490 for student visa and a separate permission to work. Now there will be no need to apply for a separate permission to work application.

Now you don't need to have a visa label in the student passport to confirm their immigration status and visa entitlements in Australia except for Chinese students who will need a label in their passports.

Now a student will pay a sum of $450 for student visa and once it approved the student automatically will get the work permission.

Those students who earlier got the student visa are advised to get the permission after applying to the authorities for work permission.

The law will allow a foreign student to work 20 hours to work part time while his/her course is in progress.

And can work unlimited hours during scheduled course breaks.

Students or family members of the students can not work until the students have started their course.

Family members of students who have started a masters or doctorate course may work unlimited hours.

There is a big labour shortage in Australian industries according to reports. Australian Government used to allow foreign students to work as part time for 20 hours per week with out getting any permission from the authorities when they are studying there. Students can get advice from their carriers office of the available jobs in that area that can be suitable for you.
