I am moving to London next year to study in a masters program at LSE. First of all, will I have time to hold a job while I study?
And secondly, how difficult is it to find employment in London?

Thanks

I was not interviewed by LSE and I did not take the GMAT. My degree would have required the GRE but was waived by the department. Lots of European (and increasingly American) departments view the GREs as unnecessary.
I am graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill, in the States, in May.

If you are after a job whilst at uni, you can get a job in the LSE or London Student Union, like in a bar or something. This is what I plan to do when i go to LSE in Oct, i figure if i get a job at beginning of term there will be little competition and i'll get one easily.

Your best bet is like mine is enquiring for a day weekend job (saturday & Sundays) on Oxford Street or one of the department shops. This way you can go out at the night and you don't have to come back from work in the dark.

I'm from the US too, and will be going to LSE in October. The prospectus makes it sound like work in the students' union is practically guaranteed if you want it. As for having enough time, LSE rules only let you work 15 hours a week anyway (and the visa technically limits you to 20), so you'll probably be able to handle it.
