Working during your studies
You may wish to find part-time work during your studies. If you have a Student Visa, you will only be able to work a limited number of hours per week during official term time. This can be 20 hours a week (if you are studying a degree level course) or 10 hours per week (if you are studying below degree level, for example on one of our International Foundation Certificate programmes). Some international students apply to become a Goldsmiths Student Ambassador and work part-time in departments across the university.
You can find out more through the Immigration Advisory Service, who offer a series of dedicated visa drop-in sessions during the year. If you have any further questions please contact email@example.com. The Careers Service will also be able to advise you.
Living in London
The cost of living in London can be higher than other parts of the UK, although Goldsmiths’ location in New Cross means that the cost is lower than in central London. Find out more about London living costs.
Finance and your visa
If you are applying for a Student Visa, you will need to be aware of certain financial obligations. Read our visa advice and guidance. Remember that your expenses will rise each year. Tuition fees are payable each year and may also rise by up to 5% per year.
