  • International and EU students

    International and EU students can access Careers, which includes one-to-one advice and guidance and practical support in job searching, applications and preparing for interviews. See our How we can help pages for more information.

    The Careers staff understand that many non-UK students will be unfamiliar with the job market and selection procedures in the UK, and are very willing to answer your enquiries and to help you consider your future career options.

    Working in the UK

    You can also have a look at our Resources portal where you will find further information and helpful tools.

    Working (or studying) outside the UK

    In our Resources, you will find a section called ‘Working Globally and other information’. This includes:

    • Going Global – comprehensive guides to working and living in 38 different countries
    • Study abroad information
    • Guide to finding work experience and internships abroad

    The Resources area also includes ‘My Jobs’ – a job search engine which has millions of jobs in over 50 countries.

    UKCISA (The Council for International Student Affairs) has some excellent and comprehensive information for international and EEA students on working in the UK during your studies and after graduation.

    NB: IMMIGRATION ADVICE: Careers staff cannot advise you on your specific immigration situation in relation to permission to work whilst during or after your studies. We can direct you to accurate resources and other services such as the Oxford Brookes International Student Advice Team, who are designated immigration advisers within the University.
