Work Permit Guidelines

The University has a legal responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK. For academic and research vacancies or those that require highly specialist skills and qualifications we will often be able to obtain a work permit for a suitably qualified applicant who is not currently eligible to work in the UK, if there are no suitable 'resident' (i.e. European Economic Area - EEA) candidates. However, for vacancies that are not academic, research or highly specialist it is extremely unlikely that a work permit would be granted. In such cases we will therefore be unable to consider an application from someone who is not currently eligible to work in the UK. If you have any queries regarding your eligibility to apply for one of our vacancies please e-mail

Information about working in the UK and applying for work permits can be found on the Home Office website.
