International students on a Tier 4 visa

Students studying on a Tier 4 visa are subject to employment restrictions

  • These term dates are only applicable to undergraduate students.
  • Postgraduate students (including postgraduate research students) are not entitled to the indicated University vacation periods. If you are a postgraduate student your hours are restricted for the total length of your course.
  • Students studying at the English Language Teaching Unit are restricted to working 10 hours per week during term-time.

Before working, Tier 4 students should obtain a Certificate of Employability from registry@le.ac.uk which will state your holiday entitlement and course end date.

Be aware that exceeding the permitted number of working hours is a serious breach of visa conditions with severe consequences for both student and employer.
