Top 5 Jobs for Students Studying Abroad
Part-time jobs for students are a great way to make an extra buck while studying. This is especially true for students studying abroad. Foreign education can often turn out to be expensive since students not only pay hefty tuition fees but also spend on rent, commute, food etc. While the money spent is directly proportional to a person’s lifestyle, no one would mind earning a little extra income on the side.
Moreover, these part-time jobs help students learn useful job skills, work ethics and teach them a lesson or two on financial independence.

Here are the top 5 jobs for students studying abroad:
Aid with Research Studies
Since you’re already investing your time, money and energy at your university, why not earn something alongside?
Most colleges offer research opportunities to their students. So if you find a topic of interest, look for researchers at your university and see if you can assist them with their research. Not only will this give you some extra cash, but it will also allow you to delve deeper in your area of interest.
What’s more – if you’re lucky enough, you may even get some academic credit for it, i.e. a boost to your CV.
Online Surveys and Q&As
Online services and Q&As are one of the most accessible jobs for students studying abroad.
Companies trying to reach a larger audience to conduct regular surveys and beta test products are always looking out for takers.
Part-time jobs – Off-campus
Babysitting: While babysitting is not a very easy job, it can pay as much as INR 2100 per hour.
Sitters for Elderly: Working in an old age home can also work out well for you. Elder sitting can earn you anywhere between INR 2000 and INR 3000 per hour.

Part-time Jobs – On-campus
With large campuses come even larger opportunities.
You could work at a canteen or cafeteria if enjoy bustling activities. Alternatively, if you prefer peace and quiet, ask around for any vacancies at the Library or Admin departments.
Depending on the task, on-campus jobs can pay anywhere between INR 700 to INR 2800 per hour.
Teach a Language
Teaching a Language is an extremely lucrative part-time job depending both on the demand of the language as well as its accessibility locally.
For example, if you’re in a country where the most spoken language isn’t English, you can get yourself an easy job. Countries like Germany, Japan, and China are places where there is a constant demand for English teachers. The same holds true for other popular languages as well.
You can expect anywhere around INR 2500 per hour per student once certified as language tutor with relevant experience.
All in all, as Warren Buffet says, “The more you learn, the more you earn".
