Work and study in the UK

Working alongside studying for your degree is a great way to support yourself as well as expanding and challenging your language skills.

Before starting any form of employment, it’s important to check that you are eligible to work in the UK. You should be able to find this information in your passport or biometric residence permit, but in general, if you are a Tier 4 student sponsored by a higher education institute for a full-time course, you can work during your studies.

If you are studying at degree level, you will be able to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week during term-time. During the holidays you can work full-time.

With the UK working to attract more international students each year, measures are currently being put in place to enable local businesses to provide more employment opportunities to students studying in the UK.
