Students on a Student visa (previously Tier 4 visa) cannot be self-employed. If you applied for your Student immigration permission on or after 6 April 2016, you must not "engage in business activity". For example, if you are not an employee, you must not work for a business in which you have a financial or other significant beneficial interest.
International students are welcome to attend our workshops and events, but they are unable to receive funding or prizes for their business ideas if they plan to be based in the UK. International students are welcome to meet with the Enterprise Manager to find out more about what we can offer. You can book an Enterprise consultation through Handshake.
