International students in Australia on a valid student visa can work for up to 40 hours per fortnight while school is in session, meaning students can work 15 hours one week and 25 hours the following week. However, there is no limit on the number of hours an international student can work during recognised school vacations. Although they are allowed to arrive in Australia up to 90 days before their course begins, students are not allowed to begin working until after their courses have begun.
The 40-hour limit does not extend to any work the student is required to undertake as a component of his or her studies or training. Volunteer and unpaid work, however, does count towards the 40 hours. If an international student works more than the Australian restrictions allow, his or her visa may be cancelled.
