Man Shares Vital Info For Nigerians Schooling In UK

A political analyst and Nigerian abroad, @Oluomoofderby, has warned Nigerians schooling in the UK to avoid flouting work hour rules for international students.

According to the University of Cambridge, a student visa issued for full-time degree level studies allows one to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week during term-time.

This is a maximum of 20 hours in total in any one week, including paid or unpaid work and for one or more organisation.

In a tweet on Saturday, January 20, @Oluomoofderby said he noticed that the UK Home Office was strictly enforcing the work hour rules for international students.

He urged Nigerian students in the UK to stick to the regulations, citing that someone is currently in immigration detention for breaking the rule.

He wrote: “Attention Nigerian students in the UK. “It has come to our notice that the Home Office is strictly enforcing regulations regarding working hours during the school session.

“Working over 20hrs per week is only permitted when school is not in session.

“Please be aware and adhere to these rules to avoid legal consequences.

“One of our brothers is currently in immigration detention because he worked over 20hrs.

“Let’s prioritize compliance and keep our community informed.”
