Support when you need it

The university provides support on academic and welfare issues throughout your time at the Business School. All students are allocated an Academic Advisor. In addition, the University International Student Advisory Team provides welfare support, visa advice and counselling, should you need it. International and EU students who join Oxford Brookes University are given priority for accommodation in student halls in the first year, as long as the application deadline is met.

Work while you are studying

If you want to earn money or gain more experience whilst you are in the UK, in addition to your work placement, and you are an international student from within the European Economic Area (EEA), you can work in the UK without any restrictions.

Non-EEA students may work up to 20 hours per week during semesters and full-time during vacations, unless you have a stamp in your passport which prohibits you from working. Further information is available on the British Government Visa Services website.

Working in the UK after graduation

The UK Council for International Student Affairs provides information about working in the UK after completing your degree.
