Part-time Employment


Whilst we recognise that you may wish to work during your degree, the University recommends that full-time students work no more than 16 hours per week alongside their studies. As an MA student the contrast between semester and ‘vacation’ will be less significant than it is for undergraduates; you would be well advised to stick to the 16 hour limit throughout the year.

For part-time students there is no set limit on working hours but we would recommend that you do not greatly exceed the full-time limit particularly during term-time and during the summer before you submit your dissertation.
