Do you have time for part-time job while studying in DMU?Watch
More about De Montfort University
Is it possible? I heard you get too much assignments and essays. For me as an international student from EU, would take even more time.
My name is Anita and I am an international student coming from Bulgaria.
There is nothing to worry about as my first impression when I started studying here is that I won't have time to work. There are many assignments during the year, however, if you plan ahead, you will always find time to work and take part in different activities. I have been working as a Student Ambassador during my time at DMU and I managed to work and study at the same time and make some great friends, as well .
In our campus we have a Unitemps agency that can help you find a job as well as our Employability team is always happy to check your CV or Cover Letter and prepare you for any job that you are applying for.

This is Jon Ellison, master's student. Adding to Anita's reply to your message, it's true that you're going to be set quite a bit of coursework and the uni doesn't expect all students to find work during their studies, but a part-time job does help you financially. If you're studying full time, I'd recommend that the job you apply for is part-time in case that job clashes with your timetable.
I myself am a part-time student and I have a regular morning cleaning job at a local college and I also work as a student ambassador. Unitemps will also support you on that and the uni does recruit student ambassadors. Duties vary and include conducting tours, PPC checking and holding presentations to potential students.
There are also a number of agencies based in Leicester which should provide some temporary work. If you have your CV, cover letter and/or certain other documents, the uni will be happy to browse through them.
