Student Circus - job searching for International students

Student Circus is a job search portal for international students in the UK who are currently on a student visa. They promote full-time job opportunities from UK companies that have a Skilled Worker visa sponsorship license and would therefore consider sponsoring a Skilled Worker visa. 

They also promote Internships from all employers irrespective of the fact whether they have a Skilled Worker visa sponsorship license or not.

Once you have enrolled as a student, you can register with Student Circus​ using your Cardiff Met email address.

Global Student Advisory Team

​We also work in close collaboration with our Global Student Advisory Team, who will be able to support you with all your visa related queries and can support you further in getting accustomed to life in the UK and at University.

You can speak to an adviser at the Global Student Advisory Service by contacting: intstudentadvice@cardiffmet.ac.uk
