Working while Studying

EEA Students (from a European Economic Area country): If you are a citizen of the European Economic Area you are allowed to work in the UK without seeking permission.

Non EEA Students:
From 21 April 2011 new students at West George College are not permitted by the UK Government to work whilst attending the College. Students must therefore have enough money to complete their chosen course without resorting to work.

You are expected to spend your time in the United Kingdom attending the College and achieving your qualifications.

Non EEA Students: From 21 April 2011 new students studying at institutions in the UK are not permitted to work after completing their course and are expected to return to their home country

Employer’s responsibilities

The UK Borders Agency sets criteria for the employment of individuals which must be met by employers. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that. An employer found in breach of the employment regulations faces heavy fines and punishment.
