Why Can’t They Work?

While overseas students are given the privilege of studying in Australia on student visas, they are limited in some aspects, the biggest being employment. Currently, anyone on a student visa is able to work 20 hours a week when school is in session and as much as 40 hours a week when school is out of session.
