You might like to consider part-time or casual work as a means of supplementing your income and, possibly, improving your employability on finishing your studies.
Supporting the teaching and learning of other students
There may be opportunities to gain experience of teaching at undergraduate level and these will be advertised by your School or Department. The work could involve delivering laboratory or computer classes, demonstrating, running problem-solving sessions, taking tutorials or seminars, giving lectures, performing assessments or providing feedback.
In addition to any specific training offered by the School or Department, the Graduate School runs the Preparing to Teach course, which forms part of the Reading Researcher Development Programme (RRDP).
The University employs students in a variety of roles that makes use of their knowledge of its structure, campus and systems. You may see roles advertised for Open Day ambassadors, IT assistants, receptionists, alumni callers, and bar assistants. Visit Jobs on Campus for more information on Campus Jobs.
