VISA & Work Study
Most international students need a visa/entry clearance to study in the UK. A Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is a unique reference number given by an immigration sponsor to study in the UK. A CAS number is required for the student visa process. There are two different visas which students can apply for:
- Student route: Students will need a student visa if they intend to study in the UK for more than six months.
- Short-term study visa: The visa can be issued for up to 11 months. Employment is not permitted on this visa.
- Standard visitor visa: Depending on nationality, permission must either be obtained prior to travel or, in some cases, can be obtained on arrival at the UK border.
The required documents are:
- Details of passport
- Previous Qualifications
- ATAS Certificate
- Bank statements
- Scholarship letter (if receiving a scholarship)
- Tuberculosis test results
- Criminal record certificate
- Parents or legal guardian letters if they are under 18.
- Recent passport size photograph.
The permission to work in the UK is determined by the type of visa that students have. Most international students hold Tier 4 (General) student visas which allow a student to work, with limits on the number of hours per week and restrictions on the type of work permitted.
- Most international students studying for more than six months are given student visas allowing them to work part-time. This means up to 20 hours of work a week during term time and full-time work during their vacation periods.
- If students are studying a course below the UK degree level, such as foundation or presessional English, they are only allowed to work 10 hours per week.
- Students holding short-term study visas cannot work in the UK.
- In some cases, students can stay in the UK after completing a degree course and take on paid employment.
In this University Tier 4 (General) visa holders cannot:
