Advice Needed? Modeling Abroad And Visa Question?

Hello, I have a bit of dilemma/question that I need your views.I am a student soon going to pursue my degree in IT in UK this September. I have always wanted to act and model, mostly model cause I love it. I have done some modeling but nothing huge, at least where I live it's not that big, I have done it part time and have been putting it off till I finish my degree cause I know it's not the most reliable career choice but I really want to give it a shot. It's my dream. My question is, is there a possibility of me being able to pursue my modeling career abroad? Full time, like after my studies? I know that in order to stay back in UK you have to have a good job offer that could show that you can financially support yourself but modeling is not really consider a 'desk job' it's more like being self employed. I know people from African countries who went as students but are now acting/modeling. How do they do this I always wonder? What visa do they use to stay back and carry out such a career? Do they use some kind of loop hole? lol. I asked a friend and he said it's impossible, that even during my studies, I cant even do it as a half time job cause it falls under 'self employment' and that's against the student visa

well I have I live i the US and I work and go to school. Its not quite the same situation but I did look at you link pittbaby and it also says on that sight that "The type of work is also not limited to your field of studies." so I think that she can model here but it is harder than it seems. hope things work out for you Rosechawa. I say do what makes you happy it can work.

No i don't get it wrong all the time, i have only apologised to not more than 3 pple here since i joined this site.

You are completely wrong to say that foreign students can do ANYTHING in USA. Do you know anything abt USA system at all?

Yes when i get it wrong i apologise for it, thats what any decent matured man should do. You just mislead somebody here and u are not matured enough to acknowledge that.

You don't argue blindly. . that's a joke, you've had to apologise to me and other members of the forum on your witch hunt for scammers / spammers. Who first brought up the word "argue" in this thread. Dude stick to what you know best "witch hunting" for wanna-be scammers

And what makes Pittbaby right ?Because she says something that supports your argument makes her right ? When you there's an argument against you, you'd ask for links e.t.c. Where is the link to support Pittsbaby ? Not so easy to be objective now is it ?

As I said if you're silly enough to believe that US students can only work on campus when there are hundred of stories of students who supported themselves flipping burgers at McDonald's then that's your luck dude.

Thats not the point, u said that USA students can do ANYTHING, infact this is how u put it:  no limit on how many hours you can work in US or what you can do,so you can do anything .Now that is misleading, you are not helping the poster by misleading her, we are here to help each other. Its just not fair when u delibrately give out wrong info.

I'm not silly maybe you shld check very well who is silly here, i don't argue blindly.

Justwise you're just spoiling for an argument, if you'll be silly enough to agree that US students are only allowed to work on campus, I'll let you be.

Please note a US Student can not under normal circumstances work off campus.

Thank you so much for your reply guys. I asked for advise from another site and they almost ate me raw and they were very discouraging. Thank you for answering me and being very honest. As for why I am doing the IT degree first, it's because I want to have something to fall back on, just in case my initial plans do not work out.
