For international students, big cities offer big opportunities to work and various options for career development, though rent and living expenses are quite expensive.  

Job opportunities really depend on what you have to offer…so, how is your English, do you have any qualifications or experience in any particular area?

If you are an Australian citizen or a permanent resident then you can work as many hours as you like but if you are on an international student visa then mostly you are allowed maximum 20 hours of paid work per week during sessions.
During the session break, you may work fulltime hours.

So, pull up your socks and be ready you have a great future ahead.
