More about Lancaster University
Hi there I got an offer from Lancaster University, I really want to study there, but I am wondering what are the chances to find a job there?
I'm a 3rd year at Lancaster and I have had a job the last 2 years so I think I can share some insight. There are jobs in the city that will require students but you need to keep a keen eye on these as they tend to advertise in the summer when they need to replace students that have graduated. I personally found that a job on campus would be more convenient for me as I knew I would be living on campus in 1st and 3rd year so it would be right on my doorstep! Even when I was living off campus I could just start my shift at the end of my lectures and head home later when I finished. For the last 2 years I have worked as bar staff on campus, student ambassador and digital content ambassador- so there is plenty out there!
My main source for finding a job on campus was the 'jobs' section on the iLancaster app. It is regularly updated and advertises short term and long term jobs such as becoming a student ambassador, retail and bar staff, promotional work etc. It also advertises internships and grad jobs within the University to really boost your CV. One thing to remember is time management. Whether you get a job on campus or in town, the job should be flexible enough that you can still focus on your studies!
Congratulations on your offer and I hope this helps!
