A question regarding working while on student visa

Hello,

First of all thank you for creating such a useful forum helping people like me.

I am an international student on student visa.

At the moment I am on my summer holiday.

last semester while I was studying, luckily I got to find this job and was working as a part time position since then.

after my exams the company offered me a full time position

since as you know, I am able to work full time on holidays.

I am going to be on holidays till the end of Feb and then again I

am going to have to work part time since I ll be studying.

Now the painful thing is I've got just one more unit left (an

elective one).

I was just wondering would it be possible for me to go to the

immigration office and apply for an exemption or something so

that I can continue working full time (studying just one subject

and elective one does not consume so much time you know )?


what other options you can suggest?

I'd be grateful if you can help me out what to do.

There is nothing to stop you seeing what you may be able to achieve with Immi but do not expect too much flexibility in respect to being granted full work rights whilst on a student visa.
You may be better off to look at other alternatives, fo instance is an employer sponsorship an option and with some time granted to complete the final unit.

thanks for the answer.
the question is, would it be possible to go on the sponsor visa till i finish my study and then shift to the normal way of applying for PR (I mean the same way as a graduate student applies after study)?

If you still meet the student visa requirements and apply within six months of finishing an approved course.
