The widespread practice in our country, when students happily grab at any opportunity to improve their financial situation, is not exclusively a domestic "invention." After all, even in a decent England find a well-fed and contented freshmanis problematic enough, therefore, the question put forward in the title of this material is of interest to many.
And if for the residents of the Misty Albion the situation is solved without special problems, it is quite difficult to find a legal source of additional income for the foreign student. But, contrary to popular belief, it is still possible, although with a number of significant limitations.
The most unpleasant thing is a strict time limit. Therefore, if you receive a degreeBachelor or Master , more than 20 hours a week can not officially count. However, during the holidays such a restriction is removed. Therefore, if the chosen course of study lasts less than 6 months, you do not have the right to work in England.
It should be noted that at one time the British treated foreign students with goodwill, that's why they often turned a blind eye to such trifles, why in some sectors of the economy the number of illegal immigrants sometimes went off scale. But in recent years, the government (not without the impact of a difficult economic situation and trade union protests) has tightened control over compliance with labor laws and imposed considerable fines (up to 10,000 pounds sterling), which caused a sharp drop in interest in foreign students.
Moreover, some initiatives of David Cameron's cabinet have been actively discussed recently, which suggest a reduction of "liberties" for foreign students up to 10 hours, and pessimists even talk about a complete ban on work. Last but not least, this is due to the sluggish system-wide crisis in the economy, so it is not worth counting on an early relaxation of the existing order.
Therefore, before thinking about studying in England, you need to carefully weigh the available financial opportunities and be prepared for the fact that you can not work and study at the same time. At least officially.
