    Hello!

    I think I answered a question from you on another thread but hopefully we can help you on the subject of part time work too! So I work part time on campus as a student ambassador, doing things like open days, visit days, campus tours etc. It is really good as it fits in with my studies and is very flexible! You also have the opportunity of working in the campus bars and eating areas, as well as in the co-op shop. All these different opportunities are advertised online through a company called campus jobs. For the student ambassador role they start recruiting in October so look out for it on the website.
    We also have the Carrington building on campus who advertise in their "Job Shop" other opportunities such as work in the town centre in shops or restaurants etc.

    So as you can see there are lots of opportunities for flexible part time work! If you have anymore questions then just let us know!

    Hi,

    Welcome to the University of Reading! Are you excited to start?

    I'm an international student and my family is not in the UK too.
    If you are like me (tier 4 visa), you might also need to check your visa if you are allowed to work and maximum hours per week?

    Good luck.

    I second getting a job on campus - it tends to pay well for the type of work it is, and they limit your hours to make sure you have enough time for studying as well!

    I am currently working on my Studen Finance. I thought about that oppurtunity as well as it would be so much easier to work on campus.

    Hello!

    Let us know if you have any issues with your student finance/ worries about finding a job on campus. I definitely recommend working on campus because it is more flexible around your studies, as for a lot of jobs you are able to select the hours you work depending on lectures and commitments. Once you arrive at the University, you will be introduced to campus jobs who advertise all of the on campus jobs (there are a huge variety) so you can apply for the roles that you wish.

    If you have any further questions, please do let us know!
