Tier 4 visas are granted for the purpose of studying in the UK. Although a Tier 4 student can work, they are restricted in the number of hours that they can work each week, because their primary reason for being in the UK is to study not work.
Tier 4 students can work a maximum of 20 hours per week during term-time. This includes paid and unpaid work.
To guide you through the process of appointing staff on a Tier 4 visas, we have compiled a handy how-to guide:
Please make sure that the Tier 4 student does not work more hours than their visa allows and they should send you a completed copy of their Tier 4 student declaration form before commence work.
In addition, please remind them to keep HR informed of any changes to their circumstances, for example if they complete their course or work additional hours elsewhere.
