Australia is a famous study abroad destination for Indian Students, and also for International Students from across the world.

Also, though the education might be cheaper in comparison to  (top choice for students planning to study abroad), the  are fairly high. As such, students studying in  can gain a good amount of pocket money to both supplement their living costs as well as enjoying the stay in the country. And the country offers more than just permission to work while studying in Australia. Before deciding to go for higher education, students should also check the .

Work Permissions on Student Visa

 have changed with effect July 1, 2016. The earlier Subclasses 571 - 576 have now been grouped under SubClass 500. As per the new rules, students going to Australia under Visa Subclass 500 are eligible to work for up to 40 hours in a fortnight while the course is in Session and for unlimited hours when the course is not in session (during breaks). The only proviso is that the student cannot start working till the course commences.

Also, a fortnight refers to a period of 14 days starting on a Monday and ending on the Sunday of the following week. The hours can be divided as per student’s convenience. For instance, a student may work for 10 hours in week one and 30 hours in week 2 or 15 and 25 hours respectively.

Ideally, a student looking for continuous part-time work must limit their working to about 20 hours a week.

  • Also, students that fall under the Post Graduate Research Sector can work for unlimited hours when the research work or doctoral thesis begins. Also, in case there are any preliminary courses that the student has enrolled into, the student is eligible to work as per the 40 hours per fortnight rule mentioned above.
  • Students completing the Australian study requirement can apply for a Post Study Work Permit under Graduate Stream. However, students enrolled in an ELICOS cannot apply for a .
