    Hello everyone. I wanted to know how much you can earn by doing part time jobs. How much can a international student earn? Also can someone give me details about cost of living in uk and studying in LSE. Responses will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    I may be wrong but I'm not sure if non-EU students are allowed to work on their student visas...
    I've been wondering about this too. Can anyone confirm?

    They can but it's limited. I think 25 hrs a week and full time during holidays is permitted.

    Adding another question: do most LSE students work part time?

    25h a week? Heh, I definitely don't intend on working that much. :p:

    And I do believe that many students, especially 1st years, work part time.

    You are right - I googled it (http://www.ukvisas.gov.uk/servlet/Fr...8721067373#Q10):


    However, the minimum wage will rise to £5.35 an hour from October 1st (exactly the same time new students will be arriving).
    Is this minimum wage the same for UK/EU students?

    It should be the same for anyone working in the Uk regardless of country of origin.

    I don't think there's a restriction on that.. you could do anything from mundane data-entry, cleaning, being a bar tender, bouncer (?), etc.

    You'd have time to do part-time work in the 1st year since its a breeze, but by the time you get to the second year, you'd be struggling to find time to do part-time work due to applying for internships and the increased work-load. Balancing part-time work, academic work (not much work really), social life can be a bit tough in the first year though since you really should be having as much fun as you can while you still have the time too...
