Depending on the conditions of your VISA, you may be permitted to work part-time in the UK, which can help to gain a little more income during your time here. If you are not sure whether your VISA allows you to work in the UK, or if you do not know how many hours you are allowed to work or what you are allowed to do in the UK, you should check your VISA documents or visit your nearest Student Central location, where you can ask to speak to an immigration adviser.
Help to find part-time work while you study is available from the Careers and Employment Service and find part-time vacancies on JobsOnline. You’ll need to apply for a national insurance number to be able to work in the UK.EU Students
