Student Dependent working Hours

Post by smaddie020 » Sat May 01, 2021 2:24 pm

Hi All,

Need help please.

How many hours can a student dependent work?
If I have a 40 hours job with one company, can I do another part time job with different company?

Also, is it safe and it won’t affect our extension when it comes to?

Thanks in advance

with certain exceptions work including self-employment and voluntary work is permitted for Student dependants (except as a professional sportsperson) and there is no immigration restriction on working hours

Any restrictions on the work you can do are printed on your BRP.

Alternatively, see Appendix Student, paragraph ST 39.3(b). ... ix-student
