Do you want to study abroad but anxious about the finances?
Many of the international students quit the dream of studying abroad just because they can not arrange their finances.
There are study loans available for international students in their home countries. But International students are reluctant to take these because they think they wouldn’t be employed immediately after completing the course and may struggle to make repayments.
Paying Student Loan While Working Part-Time
Do you know in Australia you are allowed to work up to 40 hours per fortnight during the semester on the international student visa? And during semester breaks you are allowed to work unlimited hours.
In Australia, the minimum wages is around $20 per hour.
Many international students take up this opportunity to pay up a student loan.
In the UK and USA, the minimum wages are set to increase.
In London, the government has plans to raise the minimum wage to £10.50 in 2024, equal to two-thirds of typical hourly pay.
Some international students are making a killing while working over 20 hrs in London. They are paying off their student loans and also saving some money to come back home.
Making £3000 Driving Taxi in London
With the increase in delivery services and the gig economy in the western world, it is getting easier to get part-time jobs for international students. Services such as UBER and Deliveroo are offering the best rates.
With UBER surcharge on weekends in London, international students are making up to £3000 a month driving taxis.
Best Part-Time Jobs Abroad
In bigger cities tutoring is big business. International students with excellent teaching skills are getting paid £120 per hour.
One student from UCL made over £400 for 2 days of home teaching work for yeat 8 class students. She mostly helped with the homework and explained math concepts. But parents are ready to good money if they have an excellent background and come from good school.
On the lower end, the catering industry also pays a fair amount of money in part-time jobs. In metro cities like London, New York and Melbourne, you can get paid between $10 to $20 per hour. On the weekend you get paid more.
So don’t be discouraged from applying abroad. You can arrange college fees either by student loan or self-funding, you should try to go to bigger cities where there are lots of part-time jobs.
Don’t make a mistake to go to a small city in the UK or US where there are hardly any part-time jobs.
