Guidance on part-time work

Advice on combining part-time work with your research degree

Working alongside your research degree is a great way to build experience if you take care to balance your commitments and don’t let your research suffer. Think about your own wellbeing, too, and don’t take on more than you can reasonably manage. 

Find something that furthers your goals (builds a skill, allows networking) but don’t be afraid to do something out of the box. You’ll never know what talents or interests you’ll discover as a result.
