International students

Working during and after your studies

During your studies

Many of our students undertake part-time work during their studies to earn money and gain important experience to prepare them for graduate-level jobs. As an international student, depending on the type of immigration permission you obtain, you may be able to work in the UK while studying. If you are allowed to work, the hours and type of work you can do may be restricted.

Our Employability and Careers Centre maintains CareerHub, our online vacancy service to help you find part-time work during the term and vacation period. Vacancies are highlighted via online updates, on notice boards around our campuses and in regular e-mails.

Our University also offers an innovative student placement scheme, Frontrunners, which provides campus-based, paid opportunities that allow you to develop your skills. Each post is supported by a skills development programme.

After your studies

Many international students want to further develop their potential and stand out from the crowd by getting work experience in the UK after they complete their studies.

Our Employability and Careers Centre has dedicated international careers advisers who can help you on how selection and recruitment procedures work in the UK and also organise presentations, events, workshops and recruitment fairs during the year. It may be possible to apply for a visa to work in the UK after you have finished your studies.

Improve your employment prospects

Our Employability and Careers Centre offers support, advice and guidance on developing your employability while studying and getting a great job when you graduate.
