Your questions:

Im a postgraduate
student and Im confused
about what part time work I can
do and for how many hours.
Tier 4 visa holders are allowed to
work according to the restriction
on your visa. Your Tier 4 visa
should say 'WORK 20 HRS MAX
IN TERM-TIME'. During term-time
you can work for 20 hours
maximum a week. Working hours
must be limited to those allowed
each week and can't be averaged
out over a longer period.
You can work in your spare time
while studying but this should not
exceed 20 hours per week (pg
students can't work more than 20
hours a week until they have
completed their studies the
normal vacation periods dont
apply to pg students).
There are restrictions about the
type of work you can do please
check before applying!

This internship experience has
really boosted my confidence
because Ive never worked in
an English speaking
environment before. Now Im
ready to apply for different jobs
afterwards. I also think that it
was a bit scary for employers
to see that on my CV I didnt
have any experience from an
English speaking environment,
but now I have something to
show them!
