FAQ 1187
I am an international student and want to know if I can work full-time during Covid-19?

If you have work permission, make sure that you do not breach its requirements. Even if you are no longer able to attend classes or undertake research in person, if you are in term time, and you are studying online, you are still restricted to working 10 hours a week, or 20 hours a week, depending on the level of your course.

You may work full time outside term time. Vacation dates have not changed just because you are not attending classes and lectures in person.

However, some students are exempt from the usual Student work restrictions as a result of Coronavirus (COVID-19) concessions set out in a Home Office publication.

The University will not issue any full time work letters if it is outside the normal vacation period.
