Tier 4 Visa

If you have a Tier 4 visa you may only work 20 hours per week. Any working hours booked on University of Bath jobs are managed through a centralised system to ensure that you cannot exceed your permitted hours and jeopardise your visa, but we cannot allow for any other jobs – if you also work anywhere else PLEASE let Liz know so that this can be managed. Please complete the timesheet which you will be e-mailed weekly when your hours are booked and pass it to Liz for sign-off after the hours have been worked.
