I’m a Postgrad Taught student can I find a job alongside my studies?

As there is limited funding for Postgraduate Courses many postgraduate students find that working alongside their studies is their only option. However, postgraduate courses are more intensive and it is important to find a good work-life balance, leaving enough time for your work, study and personal leisure. 

Students are usually recommended to limit their paid work to 20 hours a week to allow sufficient time to focus on academic work.

Students on visas are restricted to a particular number of paid work hours. You should always seek specific advice on this from the International Student Office.
