Here are a few points to remember while working and studying in the UK:

Why UK?

The UK is one of the most student friendly destinations in the world. The UK thrives on the high satisfaction rates, especially for International Students. Another plus point in favor of the UK is the reinstatement of the 2 year work right which permits students to stay back in the UK for 2 years after the completion of their program, to search for employment. International Students need to have a Tier 4 visa (General Visa) that permits them to work simultaneously. Another important detail is to make sure that your visa has no restrictions. If the visa has no restrictions, then the student has to check with the University on its policies and rules in the case of employment.

Part Time Employment

While students are generally encouraged to work and study, the general allocation is 20 hours during term time and 40 hours full time during vacations, some universities may have different rules in place regarding the same. While some universities offer 20 hours of employment, some offer 10 hours. Universities in the UK have their own set criterias according to which international students are permitted to take up employment. Being informed as to what the university has to offer is of utmost importance.

Types of Jobs

Universities in the UK offer 2 specific types of jobs for students. One type of employment is On Campus. On campus employment basically jobs that are within the University’s Campus. These jobs range from Research Assistants to Teaching Assistants. These kinds of jobs are often but not limited to being employed to work in the university libraries, dormitories, dining facilities, laboratories and administrative offices. The other kind of employment, is off campus. Students are allowed to work off campus in assistance oriented jobs, examples of these kind of jobs are wait staff in restaurants, delivery personnel, etc. Students are not permitted to take up professional jobs in corporate offices.

Advantages

By studying and working, the student makes more money that can not only be used to pay utility bills, but also lets them explore more and discover new things.

Extra Savings and Allowances -

Most students get a monthly allowance for expenditure to help ease the transition, along with that compensation, students working get an extra amount from their salaries to increase their purchasing power to indulge in things of their interest and liking.

Teaches money management skills -

While there is a fun element attached to working, the more serious aspect is money management. Students learn how to manage money and use it wisely, most students make budgets for certain amenities and work within those budgets.

Develop time management skills -

To cope with the fast pace of the ever evolving work environment, it is essential to learn how to categorize and manage time effectively. This skill is often developed while managing education and employment at the same.

Work environment preparation -
