Employment prospects in the UK
By studying in the UK, you will have opportunities to develop important workplace skills and your ability to think independently, which will significantly increase your chances of employment.
English is the international language of business, science and technology. By studying and living in the UK, the home of English, you will be immersed in the language and have the opportunity to improve your communication skills (of course, this takes practice and hard work!)
Many professional bodies and employers may require evidence of your English language skills. As a proud co-owner of IELTS (International English Language Testing System) IDP Education is the Official Test Centre in Cambodia and will be able to help you find a test centre most convenient for you.
During your studies
You can work part-time, volunteer or complete a work placement or enroll in sandwich courses during your time in the UK, all of which are valuable work-based experiences that can provide an edge and build your resume.
Most universities and educational institutions in the UK have a dedicated careers centre that can advise students on all aspects of gaining employment during and after their studies.
Working after you graduate
If you want to stay and work in the UK after you finish your study, you’ll need to get a new visa first or apply for a visa extension.
The three most common visas available to international students are the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur), Tier 2 (General) and Tier 5 (Temporary Worker). You can find out whether you’re eligible for one of these visas – and how to apply – on the UK Government website.
