To help you earn money or gain useful work experience, we can help you find opportunities both on and off campus. We have links with a number of excellent employers and a dedicated team of advisers in the Employability Centre who are on hand to provide information on how to secure work experience or volunteering that will benefit you in finding work after you graduate, either in the UK or in your home country.
All part-time and full-time vacancies, many of which are sourced specifically for MDX students are advertised on our confidential online employability portal, MDXjobs. You can also access a range of employability resources, register to receive email job alerts and get support in applying for any vacancy you are interested in, including international opportunities.
Working for Middlesex will help you gain valuable experience but will also provide an income to help you meet the costs of study, living and social activities. Roles on campus range from the popular Student Ambassador Scheme, Student Learning or Academic Assistants, Graduate Learning or Academic Assistants, and there are plenty of positions available through the MDX student union and in specific departments. Most offer flexible working hours or are event-based so it's easy to find work that adds to your experience at Middlesex. All these roles help you to develop the skills that graduate employers are looking for.
International students are allowed to work while studying in the UK, however certain restrictions apply. If you are an international student with a Tier 4 visa studying an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, you can work up to twenty hours per week. Foundation and Pre-sessional students can work up to ten hours per week. During official university vacations students with Tier 4 visas can work full-time.
