Australia is one of the top locations to study and work abroad. Students can admire the beauty of its natural landscapes while advancing their careers, in a location that’s not too far from home.
There is a growing international student community in Australia, with 624,001 students representing different nationalities, including the Philippines, studying in the country in 2017. Most students apply for higher education courses (44%), while vocational education and training (27%) courses are also popular.
Vocational education and training (VET) focuses on providing skills for work, so that you can learn and earn at the same time in Australia. Part time employment opportunities are available in hospitality (cafes, bars, and restaurants), tourism (hotels and motels), retail, sales and telemarketing, and many others. Most student visas allow 40 hours of work for every two weeks (during your course session) and full time work during a scheduled course break.
After studying, students may continue working or pursue permanent residency, given certain qualifications. Or they may return to be leaders and managers in their home countries.
