Working while studying

You might decide to work part-time while you're at Kingston to get some extra money. It's also a great way to develop your CV ready for when you graduate.

We keep our timetables as flexible as possible to help you fit in part-time work. But bear in mind that if you have a lot of teaching hours you might only be able to work during University holidays. There are also some restrictions if you're from outside the UK.


Job shopThe University's JobShop database regularly has more than 3,000 part-time jobs in all sectors.

The JobShop is accessed through My Kingston, the student intranet, which you can access once you have enrolled with the University.

There are also lots of employment agencies in the local area, which can help you find work in and around Kingston. And with London just a train ride away, the job opportunities are among the best in the country.

KU Talent (careers and employability) will be able to give you all the support you need in preparing for job interviews or writing a good CV.

Non-UK students

If you're from outside the UK, your permission to work in the UK may be limited. Please see our international web page for further information and advice.
