Many students choose to get a part-time job while they study to help support themselves. If you are an international student you must ensure that if you do work, that it is in the terms of your visa that you are allowed to do so.

  • If you choose to work part-time, we suggest no more than 15 hours per week to allow you to balance work with study.
  • International students - your visa will indicate how many hours you are allowed to work.
  • You need a National Insurance (NI) Number to work in the UK.
  • To get an NI number contact Job Centre Plus: 0845 60000 643.
