    I thought such restrictions were only placed on internationals?

    I’m not sure there’s a legal restriction but my college recommended less than 12 hours a week as it can have a negative impact on your college work

    I'm not legally trained, but I'm pretty confident that the 20 hr limit (or any other limit) only applies to internationals.

    correct me if im wrong, but I dont think there is a legal limit unless you’re under 18 in which case you can’t work more than 8 hours a day or 40 hours a week. in any case, if you're a full time student and want a 2:1 or first at Uni, it seems silly to work anymore than aroun 15hrs per week.

    The terms of a student visa usually say a max of 20 hours a week. But unis might have their own guidelines on how many hours a home student is "allowed" to work. Not much they can do if you work more, though.
