Working in the UK

Information on working while studying

Whether you are able to work and under what conditions is determined by the type of immigration permission or visa that you hold while you are in the UK.

Generally, on a Student visa or Tier 4 visa for study at LJMU, employment is permitted but with certain conditions and restrictions.

Under normal circumstances, employment is prohibited if studying at LJMU with permission to be in the UK as a visitor or as a short-term student.

If you are in the UK with a status other than a Student/Tier 4 visa or a Visitor/Short-term student immigration then permission employment conditions and restrictions depend on the conditions of the immigration permission you hold.

Working in the UK after your studies

The UK has a number of different visa options for those who wish to enter or stay in the UK for the purposes of employment.
