When applying for a UK visa, If Iím asked how am I going to pay back the loan, will I be disadvantaged if I say, in order to pay back my student loan Iím going to work part-time? In UK, I can work up to 20 hours per week. So what should I say? Will the immigration officers put off if I say Iím going to take advantage of the rule they made?
Hello Mike, first thing you need to know is: part-time job isnít guaranteed. You are allowed to work only if you get a job, what if you donít get any? There are many international students in top cities of UK who are jobless. Sometimes finding job may be extremely difficult but some lucky fellows find it easily. So as finding a job isnít guaranteed, the answer you have mentioned will not be suitable. Immigration officers seek for guarantee (a solid guarantee), theyíll not tolerate with your answers that are based on assumptions.

You shouldnít say youíll pay back your loan by working part-time because legal earnings made will not be sufficient to pay for living and studies in UK. And as said by Abhijeet, finding job is uncertain. Moreover wage youíre going to be paid is also uncertain.
Rather, you may say about your career prospects after studies and your possible earnings after you graduate. You may show current data about job prospect for graduates of your chosen program. They may be satisfied looking at the value of your course however some other proof and evidences will be required.
