Many international students choose to study and also have part-time jobs on campus. Employment opportunities are competitive.
Check out the campus job postings with UNO Human Resources.
International students should use tools such as fastweb to find scholarship opportunities suited for them. Be sure to read eligibility criteria and other guidelines fully before applying.
Also check with your home government, whether national or local, for other funding opportunities. Many national governments operate programs to fund a citizen's education abroad, sometimes in exchange for working at home after the completion of studies.
