Part time/term time work

 Not only will a part-time job help you earn extra cash, it can also provide you with valuable work experience which will help you find graduate level opportunities. It will demonstrate to graduate recruiters that you are able to balance work with study commitments, in addition to helping you develop new skills.

Hours of work - recommendations

We advise that full-time students work no more than 15 hours per week during term-time to avoid a negative impact on academic studies. The university holidays provide a good opportunity to work additional hours to save money for term-time so make the most of this time and check out our summer placements page.

We would also advise that you try to cut back on part-time work during exam times to enable you to focus 100% on your all-important exams.

If you are an international student please remember that the number of hours you may work, and your entitlement to work during your studies, may depend upon your visa. For more information please visit UKCISA - https://www.ukcisa.org.uk/
