All the staff and support services at Kaplan Business School strive to ensure that each student’s duration at Kaplan is as fulfilling, enjoyable and successful as possible. We understand that it may take some time for international students to culturally adjust to this new environment and are more than willing to share our knowledge of Australian customs and culture with you. We are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the great land down under.
Students who hold a student visa will automatically receive permission to work with their visa grant. Holders of a student visa are allowed to work up to 20 hours per week while their course is in session and full-time during scheduled course breaks.
Although compared to other countries, Australia is a safe country to live, work and study, students should be aware of their personal safety and security and take good care of themselves and their belongings. Students should remember not to leave valuables unattended. Always ensure that someone knows where you are and if possible always carry a mobile phone.
