Most students are able to undertake a small amount of part-time employment during term time to offset day to day expenses (subject to visa requirements).

As an international student there are restrictions on the number of hours you are allowed to work, as outlined by the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA):
- Can you work?
- What kind of work can you do?
- How many hours can you work?
- Employers, income tax and National Insurance
If you have not worked before and wish to build up experience, ask our Employability and Careers service about volunteering.
