Work to study, and study to work! Or how to combine work and study in Great Britain
Studying abroad is a really good experience. However, sometimes it is very difficult to get necessary funds to pay for tuition, living accommodations, etc. One way to get money while studying is to apply for a job. If you would like to study and work at the same time in Great Britain, you should be aware of some pertinent rules and regulations.
To begin with, rules for students from the European Economic Area (EEA) working in the UK differ from those for students from non-EEA countries. Because Ukraine is a non-EEA country, we will examine regulations relating to non-EEA students.
First, before going to the UK as a student, make sure you have enough money to support yourself and your dependants (see exceptions below). Otherwise, you will not be given a visa and, will not be allowed to enter the country.
Second, there are two types of visa you can get upon entering Great Britain as a student. The first will not allow you to work when in the UK. Such visas are stamped with something like "employment prohibition" or "no work", The second type contains only some work restrictions. This visa allows students to work when in Great Britain.
Example of a stamp that does not allow to work: No work or recourse to public funds
Example of a stamp that allows to work: No recourse to public funds Work (and any changes) must by authorized
International students who are given a permit to stay in the UK for more than six months (according to the rules, those students who are permitted to stay for six months or less cannot work) and receive the second visa type con work a maximum of twenty hours per week during an academic term and as many hours as they want on vacation and holiday.
However, you cannot work if: 1) You are engaged in business, self-employed or provide services as a professional sportsperson or entertainer. 2) You are pursuing a career by filling a permanent full-time vacancy.
As it was stated, you are required to present documents when you apply for a visa in Kyiv proving that you have enough money to support yourself and all your dependants in the UK. Nevertheless, the UK government has recently amended its regulations and now may take into account any money you will earn working in the UK. This is possible if: - you are/will be studying at a publicly funded institution of further or higher education; - your institution is providing and guaranteeing employment. - your institution has provided details concerning your future income.
If you receive a permit to remain in the United Kingdom for more than twelve months, your dependants (husband or wife, and children) are also granted work permits. In this case, the money they will earn can also be considered when applying for visas.
Everyone who works in the United Kingdom (residents or nonresidents) must pay National Insurance Contributions. In order to make such payments you will need a NI number, which are issued by local Benefits Agency offices (when applying, you must provide personal identification (e.g. your passport) and a letter from your employer confirming employment; you will also be asked to fill out a form). Note that you do not need a N1 number until you start working.
You will also be subject to UK taxation rules (income tax, etc). If your gross income during 2001 -2002 (that is from April 6, 2001 to April 6,2002; for other fiscal years, the amount of allowance is different) is less than ?4535, you can use a personal allowance and will not pay any tax. If you have young children you may be entitled to an income tax relief called Children's Tax Credit.
In general, studying and working in Great Britain is quite an interesting and amazing experience, because the country is full of traditions, interesting sights, culture, and opportunities for personal and professional growth.
