Graduate Roles

Buckinghamshire New University students study in specific vocational areas, with the aim of becoming industry specialists, or transferring their skills to general graduate opportunities.

We support all our students to develop their strengths in:

  • Leadership and self-development
  • Developing knowledge and applying it
  • Being creative
  • Demonstrating social and ethical awareness and responsibility

Part-time and Casual Work

Many of our students take on part-time work whilst studying with us. Typical roles include:

  • Retail
  • Hospitality
  • Market research / survey work
  • Administration / data inputting
  • IT support, web design, database work
  • Translating / interpreting

Do you have part time and/or casual work available? To promote your opportunities to our students, login to or register for MyBucksCareer.

Please note: We don’t recommend that students commit to more than 20 hours per week during term time. This can of course be extended outside of term time. Salaries vary from the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and upwards.

Work Placements and Internships

All of our courses encourage students to get involved with work experience and placements that are related to their chosen specialty area.  For most students, this will happen outside of term-time, but some courses offer industry-based modules .

How you can get involved: We can help you make contact with our students for summer internships, placements, work shadowing or any other projects. If you’re not sure whether you should be paying your intern, visit Employment rights and pay for interns for guidance.

We work with academic colleagues to enhance opportunities for our students so they can better understand the workplace through projects and shadowing, and mentoring relationships.

To promote your opportunities to our students, login to or register for MyBucksCareer.

Please note: We will not advertise unpaid opportunities that replace a paid position.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way for students to develop skills relevant to their course, or to work on their leadership skills and explore how to work in a team. Through their fundraising and volunteering, our students are making a great contribution to our local community.

To promote a volunteering opportunity and to find out more about what our students are up to, please contact the Buckinghamshire New University Students’ Union.
