Many students have part-time jobs whilst studying at university. In London there are many part-time job opportunities both on and off campus. This can be a useful source of extra income as well as an opportunity to learn and develop other skills.
However, if you have a job as a student, you may still need to pay Income Tax and National Insurance (NI) if you earn over the income thresholds.
If you work for an employer during your studies any Income Tax and National Insurance contributions will be calculated and deducted from your wages before you receive your payment. This is known as Pay As You Earn (PAYE).
