Useful Information

___________________________________________

For staff employing doctoral researchers as tutors

HR has advised the following restrictions with regard the employment of researchers as tutors who have Tier 4 student status:

  • Weekly maximum restrictions of 20 hours per week - not averaged over the year
  • Any multipliers should be taken into account as the multiplied hours are included in the maximum number of weekly hours
  • At point of interview we need to ascertain visa status and discuss the working restrictions with the applicant
  • We as a school are responsible for maintaining accurate records of hours worked for Tier 4 students in readiness for any UKVI audit that may take place (School Administrator will do this from information provided to us by appointing person)
  • Marking cannot be offered if it means going over the restricted hours and may mean that the tutor cannot be offered the associated teaching as a consequence
  • HR will undertake the Right to Work checks for newly appointed tutors
