I believe you need to confirm that from the immigration department yourself if how many hours of work are you allowed in a week. Students are allowed to work in general. I am not sure what's your subclass.

Hi Suman,
As far as I know, with student visa you are allowed to work only 40 hs fortnigth, wich is the same as 20 hs weekly.
Which is less than most "part-time" jobs.
I have the same issue, most part-time jobs on seek are to work 3 days a week that is 24hs weekly.

Please Keep me posted if you get a job on an IT company for only 20hs.

Best regards,
German
