Work opportunities for students 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 will be able to help you find a test centre. 

During your studies

You can work part-time, volunteer or complete a work placement or sandwich course during your time in the UK, all of which are valuable work-based experiences that can provide an edge and build your résumé.

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.

UK Government update: You can now get a two-year work visa after graduating from a UK university! Know more on the UK government's website.
