Generally, part-time job opportunities are not readily available for international students while pursuing their degree or diploma. However, exceptions are limited and case-specific. Non-Malaysian students are allowed to work on a part-time basis during semester breaks, festive holidays or more than seven days of holiday for a maximum of 20 hours a week. All students aspiring to work part-time must have a valid ‘Student Pass’. the scenario is not that great for international students to find a job within Malaysia after their studies. International students who are lucky to land a job in Malaysia on completing their studies; need to secure an ‘Employment Pass’ before they can start working.
