Advice for International Students

Tier 4 (General) students who are sponsored by a Higher Education Institution (HEI) to study a full-time course can work during their studies (between 10 and 20 hours per week). Always follow the instructions on your visa or biometrics card. It is important to check your visa to confirm if you can work during your studies. Your work condition includes any paid work, unpaid work, voluntary work and internships. If your course of study is at degree level or above you are allowed to work up to a maximum of 20 hours per week during term time, and full-time during vacations. You can have multiple jobs but you must not work over your weekly hourly limit. You must add all your work hours together and ensure that the total is below the limit.

If you want to find out more, UCL has a website with useful information for international students.

Student visas and advice

The UK Council for International Student Affairs supports international students and can give direct advice if needed. Their website gives information on lots of topics including visas and immigration, work during and after studies, home or overseas fee status regulations and sources of funding. 

The government website gives you all the information you need to find out whether you need to obtain a Visa and how to apply.
