Work opportunities in the UK
Working part time during your studies is a great way to supplement your income.
European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss nationals are free to work in the UK without restriction. Most other international students can now supplement their income by working:
- during term-time (up to 20 hours per week)
- during vacations (full-time)
- in a full-time work placement (as part of your course of study)
- The dependant spouses of students who are in the UK for 12 months or more are also usually allowed to work full-time or part-time. Our year-long work placement (sandwich) courses, which are available in many subject areas, offer some major benefits to international students
