Part-Time & Casual Work

Casual Work


Working alongside your studies can be a good source of additional income. The University can help you find on-campus casual opportunities. 

Feedback from Student Workers has shown that working for university departments can be beneficial as we can work with you to help you balance your studies.

It is recommended that students limit the number of hours they undertake paid work to 15 hours per week. However, to allow some flexibility, QWork will limit all students to working no more than 20 hours per week. Some workers may be restricted to less than 20 hours due to their individual circumstances such as Studentships and Visa restrictions.

  • improving understanding of life in the workplace; and
