part time job experiences for overseas students watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just wanted to know how overseas students (not EU residents) have found part time jobs while in uni? The student visa only allows max 20 hours/week. Is it more or less difficult to get a job? How useful would a degree under your belt be for a part time job?

    You should be able to find part time work here in the UK, regardless of where you come from. So long as you can speak reasonably good English and work hard and show enthusiasm, then you should be fine.

    Degree work is really mostly for after you graduate and get a full time job/ career. However, if you find a part time job related to your degree it will help you in many ways after you graduate.
