Working in the UK
Many students choose to work during or/and after their studies in the UK, both to earn some extra money and to gain experience. Some students work part-time during term time whilst others choose to only work during vacations. Many are also keen to undertake internships or work experience placements during vacation periods. Please read information about whether you can work and how many hours if you can in the sub-categories on our website. We also recommend students to refer to UKCISA for up-to-date guide.
Everyone who works in the UK needs to apply for a National Insurance number. For further information about how to do this, and for details about paying tax, see our information on Income Tax and National Insurance.
Our Careers Service can help you think about what you might want to do, and provide a range of services, including CV and applications checks and interview practice. They run a packed programme of events and activities throughout the year to help you look for and find work.
