National Insurance number and income tax
If you work in the UK, you'll need a National Insurance number. However you do not need to have one in order to start working.
For full details on how to apply for a National Insurance number, how much tax you can expect to pay, and how to claim tax back, visit the HMRC website.
Working after your studies
If you're an international student with a Tier 4 visa, you can work full-time during an official University holiday, or after successful completion of your course (CAS end date). There are a number of schemes that allow international students to stay on and work after their studies. You can explore your options on the UKCISA website, or speak to our international student adviser in the Student Hub.
