Earn while studying and after…!
Overseas education does not come cheap by any stretch, with large investment already made on funding your education; it would be taxing on your parents back home to send pocket money or assist you financially. So the most effective way to finance your studies abroad would be to work part time.
Finding a part-time job while studying abroad can be a great opportunity to earn money, network with prospective employers, adaptability to the industrial needs and easy employment prospects. Although international students can meet their living expenses to an extent with the part-time work, the main focus should be on successfully completing the study and moving on to full-time gainful employment post study.
Many countries such as Canada, Australia, New Zealand and UK provide students with part-time work rights during their study for up to 20 hours per week during sessions and 40 hours per week during vacations. While Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc., provide stay back options with full work rights for students to explore the job opportunities and permanent residency prospects after studies, students studying in the UK have options to move on to a Tier II category (Work Permit) after obtaining a job offer with a salary of 20,600GBP or more, post study.
