student visa - working hours

Hello all!

I'm applying for a student visa to do a Cert IV in Floristry, and the course consists in 10 sessions (1 week per month for 10 months).
Considering that "you can work up to 20 hours per week while your course is in session and unlimited hours during scheduled course breaks" (quoting the Immigration website), my question is : can i work more than 20 hours per week except for these 10 weeks?
Thanks!

Hi mb1,

I've been on a student visa and what it means by 'when your course is not in session' is scheduled holidays by the college. So where the college is closed between terms for holidays you can work more than 20 hours. But once you're back in session you have to go back to the 20 hours.

Have a look at your college semister dates and work out when their holidays fall while you're on your course and this is the period where you'll be able to work full time.

However if you think that your course may be different because there is so long in between sessions I would call immi and also your college and double check with them.

Very interesting situation!

In a month you have more than 3 weeks for yourself!! If I am in your case, I would work for the full 20 hours per week and the rest of the time I would do some business from home. But I would suggest you to check whether the time spent on business from home will be considered for the 20 hours per week quota.
