    Working

    Working in Bristol

    It is recommended that international students work up to 15 hours during term-time as full-time study for undergraduates. For postgraduates no more than 20 hours every week, as it is more important to leave some space for academic studies.

    The Universities Careers Service  in Bristol post advertisements concerning student vacancies via mycareer  and gives consults about part-time work, convenient work experience placements or internships. The government will let students know about due taxes as a student worker, in addition to advice about tax repayments via   guidance on paying tax

    International students have to look into their visas instructions to be knowledgeable about the number of working hours students can handle, and restrictions prohibiting them from working or doing voluntary work...

    As a holder of a visa student, the kind of work you can involve in is limited to “paid and unpaid work placements undertaken as part of a course of study or period of study”; “self employment”; and “engaging in business activity” . So do not expose yourself to harsh punishment when regulations are breached.
