Learning From Work

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

Career Development Module - Anya

Draw upon experience gained through your current part-time work (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 variety of sectors and roles, including leisure, retail, tourism, hospitality, property maintenance, local government and the financial sector.

Finding opportunities

If you need help searching for part-time jobs and placements, use MyCareer (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 - you can request feedback via the Resources tab on MyCareer

Registration requirements

You must have confirmed your part-time, term-time work (including details of someone at your placement who will act as your placement supervisor) before you start the module and confirmed your choice of placement with your personal tutor or degree programme director.

We will also need you to provide details of your employer’s Employer and Public Liability Insurance before your placement can be approved – we will need this information before you start the module.
