If an international student is enrolled in Masters level by research s/he and spouse can work full time and coursework student can work up to 20 hours a week and spouse can work full time. This type of work condition seems quite helpful for students to manage their tuition fees.

In most of the cases, an international student stuck to find a job in Australia. Most of Nepali students stuck with the same problem. They don’t get a job, proper timings and pay for a long time. It might take 5-6 months to get a job. In rural parts, it seems tougher to get a job to cover up living expenses.
