Working during your studies

Most international students in the UK have immigration permission which allows them to do some work during their studies. Working part-time enables you to earn some extra money and to learn about British working life. It can also be a great addition to your CV, but you must make sure that you understand and comply with the restrictions which apply to you.

The UKCISA guidance on Working during your studies includes detailed information about work entitlements for International students. You may also wish to read our guidance note for more information about working in the UK PDF icon .

Finding a part-time job

Unitemps is the provider of all casual work for students within NTU. To ensure that you hear about all opportunities on campus, register with Unitemps and sign up to their job alert emails. To search for and apply for external roles across a variety of sectors within, the local area, you can use the JobShop website. You can also visit the JobShop/Unitemps team in person in the Employability Centres on campus within our drop-in times.

The Nottingham Post (a local newspaper) and Jobcentre plus are also useful places to search for job vacancies. There are a number of local employment agencies who recruit students for temporary positions. Students also find jobs by asking possible employers, or looking out for adverts in shop windows.

N.B. NTIC students should contact their admissions department for further information on visas as permission to work differs from that of NTU students.
