University of Bradford Jobs for Students

Having a job alongside your studies has many potential benefits. It can give you the opportunity to earn extra money, enhance your CV, and improve your employability skills and prospects beyond university. Working part-time also offers the chance to meet new people and have a different social experience outside the university environment.

However, you should make sure that you can balance your job and your studies – we strongly recommend that you work no more than 15 hours per week during term time. Retail and hospitality jobs generally give you the flexibility to work weekends and evenings around your studies, but there are a wide range of roles which offer part-time hours.

Our Jobs Online database is the first place to start looking for part-time jobs or vacation work while you are studying. The database is updated regularly so make sure you browse it often so you don’t miss out on any relevant jobs. You can also sign up for email alerts so you are notified as soon as a vacancy is added to the database which matches your search criteria. It is a very good idea to do this, as part-time jobs get filled very quickly.

Thursday is Part-time Jobs Day on our social media, when we post a selection of jobs in the local area suitable for students working around their studies. Follow us to keep updated:

International Students (those who are not from European Economic Area countries or Switzerland) cannot work more than 20 hours per week in term time or more than 10 hours per week for students on the Foundation courses – except in the case of sandwich placement or internship. The penalties for working more are severe and can result in you being asked to leave the country. See more details on our International Students pages.
