Information for international students

Music students need a lot of time to practice their work.  This means that spare time can be extremely limited especially when deadlines are pending.  Therefore we do not recommend students take on too many hours of part time work as this may affect their performance and grades. 

Work restrictions can apply to students studying here under specific visa categories.  If you have been sponsored by us under our tier 4 sponsor license with UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) please read the information and guidance on the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) website. Leeds College of Music is a ‘publicly-funded college’.

Alternatively, if you are a national from an EEA member state or Switzerland you can find relevant UKCISA information and guidance here.
