Can I work full time after I have completed my course if I am a Student visa holder?
Once a Departmental Assessment Board has confirmed your final results and you have achieved your award you are permitted to work full-time until the end of your current visa, or for 4 months (whichever of these dates comes first) and are not subject the 20 hours/week restriction as noted on your BRP. 

What do I have to provide to an employer to show I have completed my course?
You can use your completers transcript, which shows the date you received your final award, as proof of course completion to your employer. Once your final results are released you will be able to see and download your transcript on My Student Record.

Do I need an employer letter from the University?
You are not required to have a an employer letter from the University in order to work full time. We appreciate some employers are reticent to employ students on a full-time basis without a letter, this is out of our control. You can direct them to the Employer Checking Service so they can check directly with the UKVI, however it can take time for the UKVI to update your status after the University has reported completion, so it may provide a false response that states you are still restricted to working a maximum of 20 hours per week.
