Students are allowed to work in Australia if they have a student visa. During the period of the course, the student may work up to 40 hours per fortnight, and for unlimited time during the holidays; however, it must be remembered that when students work and study at the same time, study is always the priority. English language students need to have an attendance of at least 80% of all lessons, otherwise their visas may be revoked.

Most available employment vacancies for students are in the hospitality area, including jobs as waiters, hotel receptionists, shop assistants, and also in the areas of construction and cleaning. The better your English, the easier it will be to get a good job.

Salaries in Australia are paid every week or every fortnight.
