International Students

If you are an international (non-EU) student studying at York St John, it is still possible for you to work part-time or volunteer whilst at University, and to find employment in the UK after you have graduated.

If you are here on a Tier 4 visa, studying at degree level or above (i.e. not on a foundation degree), you can work/volunteer for up to 20 hours a week whilst studying (this includes time spent working on a dissertation or preparing to resit examinations). During the holiday period, you can work for up to 40 hours a week.

The conditions for finding employment after you have graduated are more complicated, and you are advised to speak with the international office or the Careers & Employability team to discuss in more detail.

For any visa-related enquiry, you can contact visa@yorksj.ac.uk for help.
