Default Can I work on F1 outside the campus?

I recently joined UF. I have some doubts on working on F1:

Can I work on F1 outside the campus?
How many hours can I work and does it have to be related to the studies I am pursuing?

Thank you for helping me.

Yes , Under certain circumstances. You will either need to qualify for economic hardship, or it should be done via CPT ( it should be offered by your program). Best bet will be for you to talk to your International student advisor.

The only work you can do is CPT, which means that you need to work in field of your studies. You can't just go and work anywhere on F1. If you are from India I am sure you will have proven sufficient funds to do your masters, so economic hardship will not fly in your case.
