Part time work experience can help Students to earn enough in order to cut their day to day expenses. Moreover, students can gain experience which helps to develop skills like communication, teamwork, timekeeping etc. These skills can be very beneficial for students in the future. But students should always try to balance work hours with study so academic performance couldn't be compromised. In New Zealand, worker rights are available to international students while studying. New Zealand only allows you to work 20 hours a week on a student visa.
