How much does typical parttime work pay for studnets in London? Any ideas?
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 7:11pm On Aug 10, 2007
@D10
have you gotten the outcome of your student visa application from BHC yet?
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by D1O(m): 5:38pm On Aug 11, 2007
@funkybaby
no I am yet to. but I am quite hopeful. People who I havent spoken to for ages keep calling me up and telling me that something big is coming up for me. I'm quite hopeful really.

@Siena
Thanks for the info. I was also wondering the typical cost of accommodation in travel zones2-3. I understand accommodation could be quite expensive in central london but a lot cheaper in places like South West, East and maybe North Central. Any ideas?

@D10
Okay then. My prayers are with you. I know the anxiety that is associated with visa applications. But don't worry, all is well by the Grace of God. smiley
When you get the outcome of your visa application which by God's grace will be successful, i will then advice you on the best way to 'survive' in london.

regarding the cost of accommodation and all that, put your mind at rest, when you get to that bridge, you will definately sail through.

Working and studying in the UK- very difficult. You will earn enough to pay your accommodation, travel and upkeep. That's all.

If you are a guy, go for security course and get your SIA licence. If you are a lady, register for care training as soon as you arrive here. You get paid up to 8 pounds/hour. But please, concentrate on your course. Don't abuse your NI number else your application will be rejected when you apply for extension. I know at least 3 people who have been rejected recently for doing more that the allowed 20 hours/week.

@azoriju

you are very correct. i was going to advice the guy on the same thing but i just wanted him to get the outcome of his application so that i can tell him the tricks he should employ and how to avoid the mistakes that so many nigerian students have made. the secret of breaking even in UK is longer hours at work, the longer hours you spend working, the ''richer'' for you. security is not bad, but there is nothing in a guy doing care work.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by D1O(m): 9:17pm On Aug 11, 2007
@funkybaby
Thanks, you really sound like a sister.
Well I guess I'm hoping that I get a response from those guys next week. I wonder if I could wait a second longer. And I really look forward to the "survival lessons" from you and all other pro's in the house. shocked

@azoriju
you points are noted. I guess they've also been noted in funkybaby's survival dairies
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 10:08pm On Aug 11, 2007
@D10

Thanks smiley. I have been following your previous posts on other threads and i know that you are anxiously waiting for the outcome of your application. You will have every reason to testify to God's favour in this month of August - Amen.

One more question, have you fees been paid in full??

If yes, you are lucky and your headaches are greatly reduced.

If no, my dear, get ready to ''hussle'' seriously, which is where the problem of NI comes in.

How does a student get to pay a balance of about £4,000 pounds from working just 20hours a week

Like i said, once you know the outcome of your application, i will give you some advice and suggestion that will help you greatly in UK. Here in UK, everybody is On Your Own O !

Life in UK is sweet but hard.

@ Azoriju & others,

Please what is the process and cost of obtaining SIA licence?
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 11:01pm On Aug 11, 2007
@bulga

are you really in scotland? you should know the answer to your question.

anyway, in england (london and environs), just go to any agency that specialises in recruiting for security jobs. they will train you and tell you the right modalities to go about getting the SIA license. Am not sure, but a friend told me that the cost of getting the license has recently gone up and should cost close to £300 if not more.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by azorjiu(m): 11:25pm On Aug 11, 2007
check http://www.the-sia.org.uk/home for information regarding sia application
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by simplyme3(f): 11:27pm On Aug 11, 2007
as a student u r not allowed more than 20 hours a week - max u can get is five pounds per hour. So multiply - u get roughly 100pounds per week - tax aside.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by Bulga(m): 11:28pm On Aug 11, 2007
@ Azorjiu & Funkybaby,

I thank you guys very much.

I am new in the UK and apart from that this SIA licence thing is new over here. Scotland started issuing it from February 2007.

I called a friend some minutes ago and asked him the same question, he told me that the application and the training cost about £600, and from November 1 it will be a criminal offence in Scotland to carry out a licensable security activity without an SIA licence or for supervisors, managers or directors of security firms to deploy unlicensed operatives.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 11:37pm On Aug 11, 2007
@bulga
you are welcome. £600 ?? thats much. try getting the license/trainning in any agency outside london. go to places like birmingham and manchester. its cheaper.

simply_me:

as a student you're not allowed more than 20 hours a week - max u can get is five pounds per hour. So multiply - u get roughly 100pounds per week - tax aside.

i do not totally agree with you on that. he can earn much more. some cleaning jobs even pay as much as £6, care jobs even higher. warehouse operatives even earn higher than £5. he can earn as much as £10 if he gets attached to a busy/well established agency.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 11:46pm On Aug 11, 2007
@bulga

just went through the site that azoriju posted. it is best you get the licence from an agency approved by the scottish authorities. so i guess if you get the license from manchester, it might be useless in scotland, since that is where you intend to work. check this link.

http://www.the-sia.org.uk/SIA/Templates/TableTemplate.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID=%7b3A1C1C74-1F0A-491B-9C7A-32D2115E388C%7d&NRORIGINALURL=%2fhome%2flicensing%2fcctv%2ftraining%2ftraining_cctv_providers%2ehtm&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest#scotland

just take your time to go around the agencies and find out the one that will give you the trainning at the lowest price. most times, it is even the ''relatively small'' agencies that have the best rates of pay/steady flow of jobs.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by Bulga(m): 11:51pm On Aug 11, 2007
@ Funkybaby

You are so caring. I truly appreciate.

Please are you male of female?
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by azorjiu(m): 11:51pm On Aug 11, 2007
Maximus 5 pounds an hour? That's less than the minimum wage here. I myself am a student. I have never earned anything less than 6.5 since I came. I have done a job that paid 13 pounds/hour, but that doesn't come often.

If you are a student and do 20 hrs/week, you will be exempted from tax.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by funkybaby(f): 12:04am On Aug 12, 2007

i am female ! wink

rightly said. i think minimum wage is £5.50. Some jobs are evn £20/hr. But like you said, they do not come often.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by Bulga(m): 5:28am On Aug 12, 2007
I have read a lot on the SIA website and can't wait to obtain my own licence. I would like to choose between security guarding and door supervision (Bouncer). Please does anybody know the one that would give me more time to study?
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by azorjiu(m): 7:34am On Aug 12, 2007
You get more jobs as a door man.
There is also the possibility of working as a bouncer on weekends
which means you could get paid cash. Getting paid cash means
that your NI will not be violated.
Re: How Much Does Typical Parttime Work Pay For Studnets In London by Bulga(m): 12:59am On Aug 15, 2007
@ Azorjiu & others,

Yeah! I think it's more cool to be a doorman/ bouncer. Please is it better to work for a company or work as a freelancer? What is the best option? But I'm wondering how a doorman can survive in a country that is full of thugs and drunkards. Man should at least wear a stab vest, isn't it?

@funkybaby
Sorry its taken a while for me to write back. I've been having some problems with my isp. They no longer have a fixed tariff. Sometimes the charge me ridiculously high for a very short time online. And I'm scared of going to the cafes, EFCC is taking every young boy they see there, driving a car, claiming that he looks like a yahoo boy, Nigeria we hail thee.

I still called the VAC again this morning and they say it is still not ready for collection. I really dont know if it has anything to do with the crises in Portharcourt cos thats where I submmitted. The anxiety is really unbearable. The beef I had with my ISP peope was actually a welcome development cosit took my mind of these BHC people for a while.

And yes, my dad actually paid my entire tuition in full and got a 3% discount for doing that. Also he has promised to pay my accommodation fee for one semester (Sept to DEC/Jan) as soon as I get the visa so I guess I'm a bit lucky. It doesnt mean I still dont need those sisterly lessons of yours. I'm really looking for ward to breaking the news here one day as if say na CNN BReaking NEWS

Hello, without my invoice can I pay my fees? The school does not expect me to pay and my course not require initial deposit. Can the BHC refuse me student visa on this ground even if other documents are genuine and sufficient fund from my parents are available? Please reply before I put in my application soon.
