Working in the UK
During your time in the UK, you might want to work. There's some information you’ll need to know, such as how to find a job, understanding tax and national insurance and work restrictions.
The information here explains the rules about working in the UK not just during your studies, but also once your course has finished.
Working during study
Doing part-time paid and voluntary work is a great way to get to know British people and culture and gain valuable work experience for your future career.
If you're planning to work during your studies, you'll need to be aware of any restrictions that might affect you.
Finding a job
If you're studying at Leeds, whether you are allowed to work or volunteer, and for how many hours a week will depend on your visa.
Tax and National Insurance
All workers in the UK pay tax and National Insurance. Before you start working you'll need to apply for a National Insurance number.
As part of your course, you might choose to do a work placement. Find out more about what you are allowed to do.
Working in the UK after study
If you're an international student and you would like to work in the UK after graduating then please be aware of the immigration rules that apply to you.
Your family and work
If you have family members staying with you in Leeds while you study, they may wish to find work to supplement your household income.
