Types of Part-Time Jobs in Australia

There are two ways international students can get part-time jobs in Australia. They can either look for on-campus jobs or off-campus jobs.

On-Campus Jobs: On-campus jobs are available inside the university campus and are perfect for students as they can apply in different departments within their proximity. 

Off-Campus Jobs: Off-campus jobs are relatively easy but not always in proximity. These jobs include office boy, receptionist, waiter/ waitress, call centre maintenance, data entry, etc.

Students can also hunt for part-time work in a variety of professions, including:

  • Hospitality sector (including housekeeping)

  • Agricultural work 

  • Sales and telemarketing (call centre)

  • Administration

  • Tutor; skill or language exchange

  • Retail/sales jobs in supermarkets, departmental stores

  • Food and Beverage industry

International students can stay, work, or look for work in Australia after they graduate with a post-study work visa. The length of their stay varies depending on their qualifications and study location. There are 3 types of post-study work visa options that may be available to international students.

  • Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) – Post-Study Work StreamThis visa is for international students who have just graduated with an approved qualification from an Australian educational institution, regardless of their field of study, and permits them to stay in Australia for a period of 2 to 4 years.

  • Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) – Graduate Work StreamThis visa is for international students who have earned skills and credentials in jobs on the skilled occupation list. The skills and credentials are generally closely tied to occupations in demand in the Australian labour market in the medium to long term. The stay may last up to 18 months.

  • Skilled Recognised Graduate Visa (Subclass 476)This visa is for international students who have earned engineering degrees from a certain educational institution in the past two years. The stay duration is up to 18 months.
