Make it Happen: Visa Requirements for Studying, Living, and Working in the UK

International students planning to study in the UK typically require a Tier 4 Student Visa. This visa allows students to enrol in a course at a recognised institution and stay in the UK for its duration.

During your studies in the UK, you are allowed to work part-time, up to 20 hours per week during term time, and full-time during university holidays. This rule applies across the entire UK, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. However, the specific terms of your student visa might influence these regulations, so it's important to check with the UK visa and immigration authorities to confirm the current rules regarding part-time work.

Once you graduate, there are options to continue working in the UK. The Graduate Visa allows you to stay for two years after completing your degree, while the Skilled-Worker Visa permits you to work and stay for up to five years, with the possibility of applying for permanent settlement afterward.
