Volunteering is great way to get to know lots of things about Australia. You can learn about the culture, get to know the people, learn the local accent and possibly find paid job opportunities through the network. Students on visa with condition 8014 or 8105 can work as a volunteer outside 40 hours per week limit if:
- their main purpose is to study in Australia and voluntary work remains secondary to this, and
- the work involved would not otherwise be undertaken by an Australian resident, and
- the work is genuinely voluntary for a non-profit organisation and no remuneration, in cash or kind, is received in return for the activity.
