What can an Australian qualification get me?
In Australia, most academic and vocational study programmes are governed by the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) which is administered nationally by the Australian Government's Department of Industry with oversight from the States and Territories, through the Standing Council of Tertiary Education Skills and Employment. Apart from getting quality education, you will also enhance your state of preparedness to enter into the workforce. Some of these study programmes will have a pathway that leads you to the opportunities of living and working in Australia more permanently.
Can I work while I study in Australia?
Yes, you can. You can work no more than 40 hours a fortnight according to the policies set by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection. Most of the vocational programmes that we offer actually place the students in established organisations for the appropriate work experience. Most of these studies require a set number of working hours in order to meet the qualifications criteria.

I am just an International Student, what are my rights with regards to working in Australia?
Generally in Australia, employers are covered by an 'award', which sets minimum wages and conditions for a selected type of job or industry (see Fair Work Ombudsman's ) As a general rule, the minimum wage in Australia hovers around AUD18.50 an hour. Students who work part-time are entitled to minimum wage AND superannuation, leave, breaks and rest periods. Students must remember that they are also entitled to a healthy and safe work environment and they are able to challenge their employers in any unfair practices or dismissal from the job.
