7. Can I study and work part time to finance myself?
In Australia. Canada, New Zealand and UK full time international students are allowed to work for a limited period of time – approximately 20 hours a week.

However when applying for a visa you must show the visa officer proof of adequate finance to support yourself for the entire length of your study program. While part time work can augment your finances, do not take this into consideration while you work on your financial plans for your studies abroad. We would also like to point out that with the current economic situation in most countries, getting a part-time job is difficult.
