It's that time of year when lots of newly-arrived international students are coming into the Careers Service and asking what sorts of jobs they can be doing while also studying, in order to maximise their employability.
Now, this is not as simple a question to answer as I might like. And the consequences for international students if they get things wrong as regards what work and when are severe.
Fortunately, the experts in international student affairs, UKCISA, recently published an excellent blog on the subject which is comprehensive and accurate. There are many potential work opportunities for students, but does the Tier 4 work restriction allow you to do them? Andrew Humphrey looks at the ever-evolving world of work and business opportunities -- and the almost-never-evolving Tier 4 work conditions. I encourage any international student readers to have a look.

This is, of course, different from the work you can do after your studies - for individualised advice on this please contact our Student Immigration Advisers
