Teesside want you, here's how to get in

Teesside University, England has a long and illustrious past that has shaped its transformation into today’s vibrant, energetic, and forward-thinking institution. It is an open engineering university affiliated with the University Alliance. The institution was formerly known as Constantine Technical University. Engineering, metallurgy, and chemistry are the university’s primary fields of focus.


Graham R. Dawbarn, a well-known London architect, planned and constructed the university’s first technical structure. He is also noted for his involvement in the building of Cambridge’s Corpus Christi College. Teesside University is now one of the first colleges in the UK to introduce the Further and Higher Education Act. The university’s enrollment has risen significantly since the 1990s.


A lesser-known fact about the university is that it was established on a mission to change lives and societies.

Part Time Work While Studying

Can I work while studying here?

The immigration laws in the United Kingdom have been more rigid in recent years. And non-immigrant permits, such as the Student Visa, are affected. If an international student does not follow the UKBA’s laws, they risk being deported.


Working Hours

International students are allowed to work no more than 15 hours a week. Maintaining a study-life equilibrium is the explanation for this. You should request assistance from your mentor or a foreign student service officer in case of any questions.


Working Conditions

The following are the limitations on working part-time and on a Tier 4 student visa in the United Kingdom:

  • A limit of 20 hours of paid/unpaid work each week is permitted for anyone completing a degree or higher
  • For language center students, a maximum of 10 hours of paid or unpaid work each week is allowed during the course term
  • During breaks, full-time employment is permitted
  • You won’t be able to work full-time until you get a work permit (Tier 2)
  • Self-employment, as well as some freelance or consulting job, is prohibited

Check that your tier 4 (general) visa status enables you to work in the UK before beginning any part-time career, work placement, internship, voluntary, or volunteer work. Working for so long will leave you exhausted and depressed, which can negatively affect your studies.


Note: International students are advised to check the conditions of working in a foreign country on their study visa. They are also advised to confirm any specific instructions on the same from their respective departments and faculties. Under no circumstances should they be found compromising with the law and order of the country.

Students must also get familiar with the rules and regulations of working in a foreign country and learn about the minimum wages they are entitled to. For more details, students can check the on and off-campus opportunities on the university website. Also, refer to the UK Student Visa Guide.
