International Students

It’s important that you check your Student/Tier 4 Visa for your right to work in the UK whilst studying. It is your responsibility to check and manage your working hours to ensure you do not breach the terms allowed by your visa.

International@CampusLife can provide specific support to help you understand your Student/Tier 4 Visa. Please visit their webpage on working during your studies for International Students to access tailored guidance.
