When you earn, you pay taxes
Indian students studying abroad are allowed to work for a few hours every week (approx. 20 hrs) during academic sessions and full-time during vacations. Remember, when you earn, you’ll be liable to pay taxes as well. Do ensure if your visa conditions permit working, and check with your counsellor about such opportunities. 
Do consider the exchange rate variations as they may also affect your budgeting. It is a wise idea to look for a part-time job or seek scholarships to lower the cost of studying abroad.
