Working in the UK

EEA/EU nationals

You can work in the UK without any restrictions on the number of hours or type of work you do. You do not need to obtain permission from the University or from the UKVI. At Staffordshire University we make sure that our students get plenty of support whilst studying with us.

Non EEA/EU nationals

According to the immigration rules, you should have access to sufficient funds to pay for your accommodation, living expenses and tuition fees without having to do paid work.

If you are on a Tier 4 visa the maximum number of hours you can work per week in term time is printed on you visa. During University vacation times, you can choose to work full time, unless you are working on your dissertation or project, in which case your hours restriction still applies.

You cannot work whilst studying on a Short Term Study Visa.

It is a criminal offence to work more hours than you are permitted under the immigration rules.

Work opportunities available
