Working on a Student Visa: Work Authorization from the School?

Postby melikenaruto » 17 Jul 2012, 00:31

From my last post, I had someone say I may be able to work with a work authorization permit from my university. How can I get my hands on one of those? I don't want to walk in blindly to the CLD office and ask for one without knowing some info first. And is there anyway I can work as an international student on a student visa? FYI I will be getting my ARC sometime September since I'll be studying here for a while, a while meaning maybe a degree or even a masters. Will it be easier to wait for my ARC then work or is it possible to start a bit early?

I'm assuming you're in Taipei, but here's the info for NCKU in Tainan (which is probably similar if not the same).

And here's for NTU

Looks like you have to be a year into your studies and have to prove you're poor.

If you get a permit, it's strictly part-time only and I think there's a limit on the hours.

BTW, if you can get a work visa normally (for say, english teaching), you can also do that without any cooperation from the school. Scholarships from the school don't require you to be on a student visa most of the time.

Thing is I'm 18, fresh outta high school attending NTU CLD, so I have basically no qualifications to teach anything unless it was private tutoring (even then, learning from an 18 year old isn't exactly what a lot of people want for themselves/their children). I was thinking along the lines of waiters or store clerk or something like that. Of course part time. I heard that minimum wage in Taiwan is like 800 USD a month or something for locals, so I was hoping if I could get something that paid maybe half of that with the 16 hour work limit, because that would take care of my rent at least.

If I had to teach anything I'd teach guitar, because I'm decent at it and I know where to start. But I checked at a few music shops and classes and no one's hiring. I asked if they needed an English speaking guitar teacher, and either they said no because I was too young or there's virtually no demand on English speaking guitar teachers in these places :/
