This is the rule for students studying abroad…

Yes, you can work but about 90% of countries don’t give student work permits… However, students can work informally and part-time… But all governments and university do not expect students to depend on their possible employment to pay for their tuition and accommodation…

In fact, it not ever possible for students to study full-time each semester and work as well and yet be able to earn enough for their tuition fees and accommodation… Not possible…

They might be able to depend on their possible work for living expense but never for tuition and accommodation…

They can’t study and still earn enough for those kinds of stuff (unless they have their own businesses).

Since you are already here, there is no better time than now. Your great study abroad experience awaits you.



The university is providing many services: for instance, student development and counseling center, health center, psychological counseling and guidance center, school bus and library and computer laboratories. These services allow the students to interact and know many cultures.

It will be entrepreneurs, not states or big corporations that will allow the world to emerge from the economic depression it has fallen into. But to be a successful entrepreneur, the students need to be highly educated and establish recognizable personalities in the academic world.

Some university graduates are willing to pursue their personal careers while others might pursue initiatives to create jobs for others.

However, the aim of the university education goes beyond the limited boundaries of finding a job or starting a business and involves helping the student to search for the truth, personal development, and open new horizons.
