Ok, so I have started a job which is 40hrs a week, permanent on top of that I am a full time 2nd yr student.

Is it necessary to tell them this? I am going to uni but I need this job so I will do my own independent reading and research.

so you're going to be in work for a full-time job, but just not go to your lectures/tutorials and work yourself? Recipe for disaster...

For starters, a lot of unis will in fact kick you off the course, or fail you for that year if your attendance levels are poor. Secondly, there is a lot of information that you can pick up from your tutors that you just can't get from a text book.

Whilst I don't think you technically need to tell the employer, you really should reconsider your choice...

I would be worried about missing out on important information regarding deadlines and exams. I know at my university for some modules you could lose 10% of your grade with bad attendance. Also how will you be able to make sure you get time off to hand in work at attend exams?
