The Effects of Employment on Academic Performance of Australian Accounting Students
This study examines factors that impact students engaged in paid employment while studying in a tertiary accounting program in a regional
Australian university. It examines the differences in experience of domestic and international students. No direct significant relationship was
found between paid employment and academic performance for the overall study sample. There was a positive relationship found between paid
employment and academic performance with respect to domestic students. However, in the case of international students a negative relationship
between paid employment and academic performance was observed. A significant positive relationship between a shift work pattern of paid
employment and academic performance was found.
