Working while studying :
Around 90% of students work during summer, and over 60% work part-time during semester.
This section can help you find and make best use of opportunities for working during your degree.
  • The Rules state that applicants must be able to support themselves and any dependants without working. This means that while there is provision for students to take employment during vacations or spare time, no account may be taken of any prospective earnings from that employment in assessing the ability of a student to meet the maintenance requirement.

The conditions covering the hours and types of work they may do are:

  • The student should not work more than 20 hours per week during term time except where the placement meets the definition of a course or internship
  • The student should not engage in business, self-employment or the provision of services as a professional sports person or entertainer
  • the student should not pursue a career by filling a permanent, full-time vacancy.
  • working after the course has ended

If you are intending to work in the UK after your studies it is best to start your research early. This is due to the fact that it can take some time to find a position that is right for you. It can also take some time to go through the application process, which can often consist of formal applications followed by an interview or a series of interviews and assessments.

You can contact the University Careers and Employability Centre who are available to help all students looking for graduate employment, work experience and training. They are based in the University Centre. You can talk to staff, and use reference material and take-away literature to help you with your career planning.  Whatever your course, and whichever country you wish to work in when you graduate, they will try to help.

I cannot explain in words how much Mr. Ramesh Pathi has helped me with the entire college process. On the very first meeting, Mr. Ramesh gave me a list of various check points for colleges that would need to be completed by certain dates. This really helped me to not procrastinate or miss any requirements or deadlines. Mr. Ramesh was always available to answer any questions and proof-read my applications (he even tests!). I greatly appreciate Mr. Ramesh’s help, and do not know what I would have done without his help."
