Living and working in NSW Students can choose from a range of accommodation options in Sydney and across NSW. Prices vary depending on the type of accommodation and the region. Accommodation in Sydney is generally more expensive than most other areas in the state. Many universities offer on-campus residences either on the university grounds or near by. While the fees and facilities vary, students are usually provided with a private bedroom and shared bathroom, kitchen and entertainment facilities. Some residences include a dining room and meals; in others, you must prepare your own meals. You can live off-campus in a fl at, apartment or house rented from a real estate agent or private landlord. Many students choose to share accommodation and the cost of rent. You are required to pay a bond or a deposit which will be refunded at the end of your stay provided no damage has been done to the property. Your institution may be able to help you fi nd accommodation or put you in touch with other students also looking for a share house. Another option for the international student is homestay where you live with an Australian family. Your institution can help organise a homestay with a family that fi ts your needs. For school students, there is a range of private boarding schools in Sydney and across NSW. At boarding school, you usually share a room and all meals are included. International students can work up to 20 hours per week during term and full-time in the holiday breaks. There are plenty of part-time work opportunities for international students throughout Sydney and NSW.

Administration, call centre and tutoring work are also popular choices for students. Many institutions have employment support services to help you find work. The Sydney metropolitan region and New South Wales present a myriad of opportunities for students at the primary, secondary and tertiary level.
