Am I allowed to work whilst I'm studying?
During term time, students are limited to working 20 hours per week. This maybe less depending on your visa requirements.
If I'm an Overseas Student, can I work while I'm in the UK?
If you hold a Tier 4 visa, and your visa states that work is permitted, then you can work. If you are doing a full-time degree-level course, then you should be able to work 20 hours per week during term time, and full-time during your vacations. If you are doing a course that is below degree level (such as a foundation course or Pre-sessional English course), then you should be able to work 10 hours per week during term time, and full-time during your vacations. The key is to check your visa sticker and/or Biometric Residence Permit.
If you are in the UK as a Standard Visitor or as a Short-term Student, you will not be able to do any work.
