In fact, there are many different ways of financing your studies at the International College of Management (ICMS) in Sydney.

What kind of visa do I need to work in Australia?
With your student visa or the Working Holiday Visa, you are allowed to during your stay abroad in Australia. The student visa allows you to work for up to 20 hours per week during your semester at ICMS and even full-time during the semester breaks.

However, keep in mind that the Working Holiday Visa can only be issued once in your lifetime!
Working in Australia – Minimum Wage and finding a job
Since the minimum wage per hour is about 21 AUD in Australia and therefore a lot higher than in Germany, it is really worthwhile to look for a part-time job to finance your living expenses and your travels. In Sydney as well as in Manly there are a lot of job opportunities right on your doorstep due to the many bars, restaurants and shops in the area.
In order to work in one of the many bars, restaurants or bottle shops, you need a so-called RSA Card (RSA= Responsible Service of Alcohol). For this purpose, a one-day course is usually required. You will learn how to responsibly sell alcohol, how to prevent alcohol poisoning and much more. Depending on the state, the RSA Card costs between AUD 40 and AUD 160.
I loved working in Manly. I did not only have the chance to earn money but also got to know different people than during classes and additionally I got in touch with locals.
