My last exam was 3 weeks ago, so I've been available to work since then, but term doesn't finish for another week. Does anyone know when you officially stops being a student? I ask because I'm applying for jobseekers allowance.

I'd like to know that too for various reasons. I think my university attendence officially finishes on July 1st, so I'm guessing I'm still counted as a student at the university until then.

No offence, but why the rush to go on Jobseekers? Why not try and get a job first? Don't you need to be not a student and unemployed for 3 months before you can claim? Sorry to be judgemental if you have a genuine reason.

I guess I've always been lucky with getting a job (yes even if it means the dreaded telesales) within a couple of days of starting looking which means its not worth the hassle of filling in the forms!

I'm applying for 'proper' graduate jobs, and judging by my friends experiences I'm expecting the whole process (sending off CVs, interviews etc) to take about a month or so - assuming anyone wants to employ me

I think you stop being a student on the last day of the last term of your 6th Form/College

Good luck!!! The grad process is a bit longer! hopefully not too long. I daftly assumed you were mid-degree rather than post-degree. Hopefully won't be too long....

Presumably when you graduate.

The date your university ID card runs out is your last day of being a student (as you still need to answer to the university until then)

Nottingham doesn't put expiry dates on student ID cards any more, because it saves them money if you change course or add an extra year to your course (eg by taking a year abroad) as they don't have to produce new ones, so I don't think that's necessarily the defining factor.

Depends on the uni and the course, ring either the uni and ask them for your official end of year date or ring the jobcentre - they have a HUGE list
