Additional Information for Tier 4 Visa Students 

Students who are Tier 4 visa holders are entitled to work up to 20 hours per week during the semester and full time during University vacations in line with the parameters of a Tier 4 visa. Please note that for these purposes, the summer vacation runs from the end of semester 2 to the beginning of semester 1 in the following academic year.

Undergraduate Tier 4 students are therefore entitled to work full time during the Christmas, spring and summer University vacations.

Postgraduate Masters Tier 4 students are not on vacation from their course during the summer University vacation and therefore, within the restrictions of the Tier 4 visa, are not entitled to work more than 20 hours per week during this period, but are entitled to work full time during Christmas and spring University vacations.

MRes, MPhil and PhD Tier 4 students undertaking research are not regarded as being on vacation from their course of study during the spring and summer University vacations and therefore are not entitled to work more than 20 hours per week during this period.

All Tier 4 students, however, can work full-time for up to 4 months after the official end date of their course (as indicated on PEGASUS as 'completed') until their visa expires.

If you require further information on working conditions for Tier 4 students, please contact the International Student Support Team at tier4@strath.ac.uk, on 0141 548 4273 or at their office at MC1.41 (Advice Centre), Level 1 McCance Building.
