    Foreign students are always severely restricted or outright barred from working while on a student visa. If allowed to work at all, and if you can find any sort of job near campus as a foreign student, you will ONLY earn enough for incidental expenses. You will still need to prove you have all of your school + living expenses, plus return transportation to your country of citizenship, to apply for the student visa.

    Jobs for students are very hotly contested most places. Citizens, of course, have great advantages for employers, and so are far more likely to find work. Citizens have no restrictions on their working hours, know the country-culture-language-customers, & often have experience from summer jobs, etc. Jobs are very scarce! Unemployment rate in US for age 16-24 is over 50%, and that's pretty typical throughout Europe, UK, etc, too. Your chances of finding any sort of work are poor to nil as a foreign student.

    If you lucked out and found some work, hours & pay are minimal. You might be able to afford transportation and proper clothing for work, perhaps some incidentals such as toiletries and personal items. No way you can earn enough to pay room & board in the dorm, or one of your utility bills if you rent an apartment. You might be able to buy an extra textbook or two, but not all your books & supplies for the semester (but then how are you going to pay transportation to work, or laundry, or - or - or. . . ?)

    Texas is a good state in which to live. They have the most job opportunities out than compared to other states, say like New York and California. Austin, Dallas, and Houston Texas are the best cities for jobs, but they are chaotic. However, you can live in smaller cities near them and commute. They pay alot of money for people in the medical field. The cost of living is not expensive. The University of Texas at Austin is a quality school, where you can get your degree.
