Student Life in Australia

Student Life

For most young people, particularly for the millennials, Australia is a dream destination. With smart cities across the coast, high quality education and high standard of living, Australia is the third best country for higher education after the UK and the US.

A relatively young country like the US, Australia had developed in leaps and bounds in terms of scientific and technological developments, and is home for some of the major inventions of today such as the electronic pace-maker, polymer currency notes, the aircraft black box, and google maps. Australia is also proud to have produced 15 Nobel Laureates!

Work and study in Australia

Working part-time can certainly help you support yourself. You can work alongside your studies in Australia but the working hours are limited to 20 hours per week.

The average wage a student can earn per week is around AUD 325, but you will need excellent English skills to get a job or transferrable technical skills which are in high demand at present. It can take between 4 and 6 weeks (maybe more) to secure a job, so you should factor this into your budget.
