Study or Work in Australia

You can stay in Australia longer if you study or work in Australia.

If you think that you won’t get enough of Australia on a trip and want to stay longer, you may want to work or study here.

It is not a bad idea - a lot of international students study abroad in Australia, and a lot of backpackers work and travel Australia on a working holiday visa.

Become an International Student - Study Abroad Australia
There are a lot of international students in Australia, and studying aboard is an excellent opportunity to get to live in Australia for a while. You can study on different levels, whether you need an English language course, or whether you want to do a university course or degree.

Check out the Australian Government’s Study in Australia website, where you have all the information about what a student’s life is like in Australia, and practical tips about how to organise it. Once you know which university you have chosen, there is a lot of information for international students on the universities' websites too. You have to plan everything from home and apply for a student visa from your country before you come to Australia. You can also work limited hours as an international student, International Casuals website lists jobs for international students.

Work in Australia
Or, you may want to get a job in Australia. All nationalities except New Zealanders need a working permit to work in Australia, and you are not allowed to work on an Australian visitor visa. You also need a tax file number.

There are different kinds of working visas in Australia, but the most popular amongst young travellers is the working holiday visa. The most popular backpacker jobs are fruit picking and hospitality jobs, but there are also the ski resorts, outback jobs, mining jobs, and other places great for working in Australia.
