Re: Australian looking for work while studying Business Administration Part time

When did you start your studies? Most non-EU nationals can't work for the first 6 months of their course so if you started in September it just won't be possible.

This from ETHZ, but I assume it's the same elsewhere.

"Gainful employment
Main content

During the semester, you may accept a paid part-time job of no more than 15 hours a week. Full-time employment is permitted during the regular semester vacations. However, in both cases your employer will have to apply for your work permit at the cantonal Office for Economy and Labour ("Amt für Wirtschaft und Arbeit" – AWA) if you come from a non-EU country. This is only possible once you have received your residence permit!

Important:
Bachelor students from non-EU countries must have lived in Switzerland for at least 6 months to obtain a work permit.

During their first 6 months in Switzerland, Master students from non-EU countries can only obtain a work permit for a job at their ETH department."
