The University is committed to providing part time work to our students, helping them earn as they learn while also developing employability skills which will enhance their future career prospects. Please see specific guidance for recruiting Tier 4 students below.
Students are only permitted to work up to 20 hours per week in term time or on a full-time basis during their vacation periods. Please note that vacation periods are different for undergraduate and postgraduate students and can be checked at http://www.ncl.ac.uk/regulations/docs/term-dates/#currentandfutureyears. Part-time students are eligible to work full time throughout the year.
It is expected that students will be paid for all work undertaken within the University, this includes all work experience, placements and internships, at one of the agreed student pay rates.
Recruiting Units are responsible for ensuring that a UKVI right to work check is undertaken and documented in advance of any work being offered or undertaken. This applies to all workers, including international students.
Guidance is available from the HR website: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/hr/assets/documents/prevention-of-illegal-working.pdf.
To safeguard against accidental breaches of their visa conditions, International students studying on a Tier 4 (General) student visa may only work via one of three distinct routes within Newcastle University at any one time:
Please note that Tier 4 (General) students cannot be paid via fees form.
Tier 4 (General) students cannot work for more hours than their visa conditions allow during term-time. The maximum number of hours per week is either 10 or 20 hours in term time (depending on the study programme). Term dates differ for undergraduate and postgraduate taught and research courses.
Any queries in relation to this procedure should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
