Working within KCLSU means you’ll be working alongside other students, so it’s a great way to meet new people, especially in your first year. There are a range of roles such as working in the KCLSU cafes, restaurants, office spaces or the Union Shop.
The hours depend on the role you’re applying for but working for the KCLSU could be a great alternative to getting a part time job externally: you’ll be on campus so you won’t be too far from study spaces and libraries, and you can obtain a healthy study-work (and social!) balance.

There are a range of internships available for undergraduates at King’s. The university has partnerships with lots of companies and you’ll find the internships advertised on CareerConnect . This is a fantastic way to learn more about a company and industry while gaining useful work experience.
Similarly, the university also runs internal internships over the summer where you can intern in one of the departments in the university, making an impact on your education and the experience of your peers! My experience of interning with the Student Success department has been so beneficial in my personal development and learning. I’ve felt like my views and opinions are taken seriously by the department and I have developed many transferrable skills such as communications, project develop, time management, networking and more. Also, I have worked on projects that impact my experience at university and that of my peers!
You may find an internship in the exact field you’re pursuing as a career. Or, if you’re unsure of what you’d like to do, you can apply to different ones, and you may stumble across a role that really interests you!
