International students: Working in the UK

As an overseas student, you may wish to combine your studies at Trinity Laban with part time work. This section gives you essential information about working in the UK as a student and directs you to further sources of help and information.

While you are registered as a student at Trinity Laban you must be able to show that you are able to study and live in the UK without working, but you may take part time or holiday work. 

The following table provides answers  to some of the questions you may have at this early stage about whether you can work during your studies.  Our Careers Coordinator, Juliet Ingram, is available to answer your questions.  Email: [email protected]

Please be aware that, even if you do have permission to work part time during your studies at Trinity Laban,  there may be restrictions on the type of work and the number of hours you can work.  For more information please go to the relevant page within the career support section of this website.   The Careers Coordinator will also be very happy to help you; you can arrange a face to face meeting once you have started your programme of studies at Trinity Laban or ask a question via email.

Please refer to the following table  for an overview of what you need to know if you are intending to undertake any part time or holiday work while you are studying with us.
