Work while you study
International students studying in United Kingdom can work part time and full time during vacations. However the hours of work students can do during term-time depends on:
- the level of course the student is studying, and
- whether the institute the student is enrolled is in Tier 4 sponsor with Highly Trusted Sponsor status.
Most students studying a Master’s course at any University will be able to work 20 hours per week
Most students studying a Diploma, Advance Diploma or Post Graduate Diploma will only be able to work 10 hours per week.
Some students will be eligible to take up placements or internship placements, which are part of a ‘sandwich course’.
Please note : Student Part time jobs may only be minimum wage jobs like work in fast food joints, department stores or call centers. We strongly advise students not to depend on part time work for their tuition fee and expenses.
