Part-time employment

A part-time job can supplement your income and help you to gain valuable work experience.

The University recommends that full-time undergraduate students do not work for more than 15 hours a week during term time. The University's Guild of Students operates Jobs, Skills and Volunteering which promotes employment opportunities on offer at the University and at reputable local employers who understand that your working hours must remain flexible in order to fit in with the requirements of your course.

Worklink is based at the Guild of Students and operates alongside the Jobs, Skills and Volunteering to match students to on-campus casual work at the University.

The national minimum wage for ages 18-20 is £7.49 per hour, for those aged 21-22 it is £10.18, and for 23 and above it is £10.42. These figures are for 2023. The rate may rise in April 2024.

International students who wish to know if they can work in the UK under their student visa can get advice and guidance from the UKCISA website
