Most students are able to work part-time while they are studying, but some students might have a restriction preventing them from working.
Please check that you are allowed to work before applying for jobs.
If you are able to work you will need to apply for an National Insurance (NI) number before you start working.
You will need to be enrolled at the University of Wolverhampton before you can apply for an NI number, as you will need proof of your student status and your local address.
When you are enrolled, to arrange an appointment to apply for an NI number, call the ‘National Insurance Helpline’ on 0845 6000 643.
If your visa stamp includes words to the effect of “No work or recourse to public funds”, it means you are not permitted to work at all.
Most students from the EU / EEA can work unlimited hours in the UK without the need for a work permit (for exceptions, see information regarding Worker Registration Scheme below). You will, however, have to apply for a National Insurance number BEFORE you find a job.
We have a dedicated Careers and Employment service, as well as its own recruitment office, The Workplace.
The Careers and Employment Services Team offer a range of services including help with finding a part time job while you are studying and guidance with your career plans after you graduate..
