Learning From Work

Learning From Work

Use your part-time job to develop skills that can impress employers when you graduate.

Draw upon experience gained through your current part-time job (paid or unpaid) for academic credit. With this module, you can gain insight into how you’re contributing to your existing workplace, helping to show your value for potential employers.

Our students have undertaken work in a wide variety of sectors and roles – take a look at our Learning from Work Placements (PDF: 209KB) for ideas and inspiration.

Finding opportunities

If you need help searching for part-time jobs and placements, use My Career (University login required) to search for vacancies. We've also got some advice about finding part-time jobs, making applications and getting work experience.

The Careers Service can help you with your applications through our drop-in service, no appointment needed.

Registration requirements

You must have confirmed your part-time, term-time work before you start the module and confirmed your choice of placement with your personal tutor or degree programme director.
