Gaining part-time work whilst you are studying can be a good way to not only gain some extra money, but enhance your skills and experience. Any part-time work you do will develop transferable skills such as communication, customer service and teamwork which are useful in most careers. For this reason, It’s not vital that you gain work in the field you wish to go into after your studies. However, trying to get work in a role similar to what you hope to work towards (or being able to work closely with someone who is in the role) will allow you to gain some relevant experience and insight.

If you study full-time, it is recommended you work no more than 16 hours a week so as to not interrupt your studies. If you are a non-UK/EEA-domiciled student, there may also be further restrictions to the hours you are allowed to work. For more information, visit UKCISA or Student Support on Campus.
