More information about applying for the Tax File Number, and obtaining part-time work while studying, will be given during Orientation week

How many hours a week can I work?

Holders of a student visa can work up to 40 hours per fortnight while their University program is in session, and full-time during University vacations. In general, students should not expect to cover tuition fees or living expenses from casual work.
