Question
How many hours a week can an overseas student work whilst on a course in the UK?

Answer
Thanks for the question. A non EU national on a student visa in the UK, can work for 20 hours per week during term time and full time (40 hours) during official college holidays. These hours can be averaged, so during term time if you work 16 hours one week, you could work 24 the next week (this makes it easier to do blocks of 8 hours. Hope this answers your question.
