Study in Australia: Great Work Opportunities
International students have the option to temporarily work in Australia after their course. The Temporary Graduate Visa (subclass 485) facilitates this. This visa allows students from both the Graduate Work Stream as well as the Post Study Work Stream. The Graduate Work Stream Visa, granted for 18 months, is only issued to international students who complete their education in Australia in areas which are in demand in the Australian labour market. For this visa, the aspirant must have completed the course and should have earned a degree, diploma or a trade qualification. The Post Study Work Stream visa is granted for two, three or four years depending on the educational qualifications. The eligibility qualification for this visa is a Bachelor's, Master's or a PhD degree.
Work options are also available for current students. Student visas permit the students to work for 40 hours every two weeks during the course duration and unrestricted hours during course breaks. Students can work in the retail, hospital, tourism, agriculture, sales and telemarketing sectors in clerical roles or engage in tutoring.
Employees working in Australia, including international students, have some basic rights at work such as minimum wage, challenge of unfair dismissal from the job, breaks and a healthy and safe work environment.

According to the official Australian government source for Study in Australia, students can expect to spend anywhere between A$230 – A$680 per week on living expenses. This is excluding the accommodation and insurance costs.

Hello. You can do practice in australia after completing medical practice in india. Go with the reqypuired documents and you will be needed to do a training of 24 months over there. Instantly one cannot put the practice. After this training period of 24 months, you will be certified that you can do the practice in australia. But the degree and specialization will be from india. They won't give any specialization degree there.
see mba is a post graduate course, so first of all you need to complete your graduation, then you are eligible to apply for mba, in india most of the institute required 50% marks in graduation as a qualifying marks criteria for mba admission. since you have discontinued your graduation course you are not eligible to study mba neither in india nor in abroad.
