I’m an International Student – Can I be an officer?
Generally, international students are eligible to take up Full-Time Officer roles: the regulations consider the post an extension of study.
It is generally permitted to work as a Full-Time officer whilst on a student visa, both full-time (with course deferred or at the end of the course) and part-time (maximum of 20 hours/week, in keeping with student visa restriction), and that relevant visa advice (and help with submitting any required visa applications) can be provided by the Immigration Compliance Team.
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA), collaborating with NUS, have put together guidance on the issue. UKCISA have kindly agreed to make the resource available in full at no cost to students’ unions. The briefing contains sections appropriate for students’ unions, institutions and candidates, but it is worth reading in full. The briefing can be found here. If you have any questions about the elections, the roles or the Students' Union please email firstname.lastname@example.org
