Twice a week we publish problems that will feature in a forthcoming Dear Jeremy advice column in the Saturday Guardian so that readers can offer their own advice and suggestions. We then print the best of your comments alongside Jeremy’s own insights.

I am an international student planning to study in the UK with a view to a career in fashion. According to my visa (Tier 4), as I understand it, I am not allowed to work during the course – I am only eligible to do so in holidays and during seasonal breaks. I want to know if there are any summer internships I could apply for in fashion.

I have seen a lot of online profiles of people who have proudly listed two-month internships at Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Harrods and so on, but although I have been scouring every advert I can find, these opportunities seem very rare. How do I find them?

Do you need advice on a work issue? For Jeremy’s and readers’ help, send a brief email to dear.jeremy@theguardian.com. Please note that he is unable to answer questions of a legal nature or to reply personally.
