International students 

Most international students will be able to work, but there are likely to be restrictions around the type of work you can do and the hours that you can work.

Generally, students on an undergraduate degree can work up to 20 hours per week and then full time during the vacations, or after their the official course end date as stated on their Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies.
