I am currently a master's student and as a result of the confirmation I received from my school and the research I have done, I have the right to work for 20 hours during the academic calendar and 40 hours during the summer holidays. They stated that I have such a right as I am not in the thesis period. I started my first 20-hour part-time job in March and started my second 20-hour part-time job in June, since my school is on summer vacation. I work 20 hours in both jobs and I never exceed 40 hours. Both businesses know that I work two jobs, and my tax code at my first job is 1257L, and at my second job, which I started later, my tax code is BR. However, there is one thing that I'm curious about and want to be sure of because I don't want to have problems with the visa later on. As far as I know, payments are made on monthly working hours. And if in the future I am asked to prove that I do not exceed 20 hours per week during the academic calendar and 40 hours during the holidays, what should I do? Should I get a letter from the workplace or do I have documents that I need to keep just in case? Or should my workplace take action on this? I would be very grateful if you could help me with this topic.

Hi Basak,
If this situation arises you would need to contact the employer and ask them to provide evidence of your working hours.
Thank you.

Hi Omolove
This is normal practice for employers to pay their employees in arrears.  There is nothing to worry about.

I'm a international student and I have a doubt about working full time after term dates of my university course. My question is "How many hours can I work as a full-time after my term dates of my course untill my BRP expires?"

I have one more question about paid holiday hours while working 20 hours as a student. Are paid holidays calculated based on the basic 20 hours per week for part-time students? For example, in my part-time job, they credit my salary every month-end, which amounts to 80 hours per month. However, one month, I received 78 hours as my basic student hours for the month and then received an extra 7 hours as holiday pay. Will this affect my future PSW visa?

Hello, I have a question regarding the hours I can work during non-term time. I’m currently pursuing my one-year Master’s degree, and my semester classes will be finished by the end of this week. No more modules are left except for the upcoming assessment submission and the main project. I would like to inquire if I’m permitted to work for up to 40 hours during this period until my visa expires. I truly appreciate any assistance you can offer. Thank you.

Hi Hari,

You would need to check the terms of your VISA.

This will be reviewed/issued automatically in due course

Thank you.

Hello, I am currently on student Visa (can work 20 hours per week) and my employer pays me fortnightly. So is it possible if I work for 7 hours in one week and 30 hours in the second week. So in my two weeks payslip I am under 40 hours of work.
