Hi guys,

I have a doubt, u see if i get a student residence permit then I'm allowed to work for 20 hours/week. If i have to work more than that I have to take a work permit, right. If true, then if I discontinued the course (for which I got the student permit) can I still stay and work(if I'm doing a job which pays me well). Can i stay,, without any problem (or Is it possible, in the first place). Please help me on this.

Thanks in advance..

If the job signs you the labor certificate and the ministry of labour approves it, then yes. They might require you to go do the application back home though... so better stick to studying while there are "if's" around.
