International students in Australia are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year and full-time during semester breaks. There are many job opportunities available to international students in Australia, including retail, hospitality, and customer service roles. However, it is important for international students to ensure that their work hours do not interfere with their studies, and to be aware of their employment rights and obligations under Australian law.

Whether you want to hit the surf or admire from afar - beach hopping here is second to none! Australia is the perfect place to live to find that work, life, and study balance

However, it's important to plan your trip carefully, budget accordingly, and be aware of cultural differences to fully enjoy your experience.
