Employment Undertaken by Full-time Undergraduate Students in Term Time

The University is sympathetic to the financial burdens placed upon students and recognises that many full-time students undertake part-time paid employment to provide financial support for their studies.  The University's general guideline is that full-time undergraduate students should spend no more than 15 hours per week undertaking employment during term-time.  Notwithstanding this guideline, it remains the students' responsibility to ensure that employment commitments do not conflict with the academic requirements of their studies.  Where a potential conflict is expected to arise in regard to fulfilling attendance and/or performance requirements of a particular programme, or where such conflict arises during the period of employment, students are strongly recommended to inform the relevant Degree Programme Co-ordinator, Personal Tutor or Head of College, as appropriate.
