Re: non Eu student can work along with study

Yes, non-eu students can work after first 6 months, with 15 or 16 hours maximum per week (you'll need to double-check this, it could be up to 20 hours, but pretty sure it is 40%, so 16 hours)

Re: non Eu student can work along with study

I believe it's 20 hours.a week. I think exceptions are made for internships.
Where are you studying as a matter of interest? I can them maybe direct you to someone who can give you a definite answer.

Re: non Eu student can work along with study

Both incorrect, the maximum is 15 hours a week during term time. And non-EU students can't work for the first 6 months of their course if doing a Bachelors.

Oh dear, not an MBA course I hope. They're not worth the paper they're written on.

Re: non Eu student can work along with study

Sorry. It is 15 hours. I also just checked. I think it was 20 hours because we used to employ students on that basis, but it was a few years ago.

I doubt it. Don't think you'd be able to work at all. As far as I know the rule applies to univesity students only so if the course isn't at one of those you wouldn't be allowed to work. And yes it would still apply if the language course is at a uni.

Re: non Eu student can work along with study

Not sure I understand what you will do here exactly, but to sum up:

You can work 15 hours a week once the first 6 months are up IF you are enrolled as a full-time student at a 'real' university studying for a 'real' degree.

If you are taking some language course or really any other course that is neither at an actual university nor counts towards a degree at an university elsewhere, you cannot work at all.
