Work experience opportunities for international students

Gaining work experience whilst you study through a part-time job, internship, study-related placement, or through taking part in voluntary projects is highly rated by graduate employers and will help you develop skills to add to your CV. Here are some ways you can work while studying at Sheffield Hallam:

The International Career Enhancement (ICE) Club

The ICE Club provides an opportunity to develop employability skills by taking part in part-time casual work assignments alongside the International Experience Team. It is highly competitive and only students who have been pre-selected and trained can become full members and be invited to undertake part time work.

Culture Connect

Become a mentee or mentor for the Culture Connect peer mentoring scheme and you can get valuable volunteer experience for your CV. You could be matched with someone from a different country, which is a great way to develop your cultural awareness. Plus there will be regular training and social events for members. 

Hallam Volunteering

You can gain a range of transferable skills from volunteering projects which don’t normally take a lot of your time.

Campus jobs

The Careers and Employability Centre advertise hundreds of student-friendly part-time job opportunities. Please note that not all students who sign up for campus jobs will get opportunities for work experience - this will depend on your skills and availability for work. Register your details on Unihub for the latest opportunities.

Venture matrix

A University-wide learning scheme that provides students with a chance to simulate the business world as an accredited part of their course. Your course must be on the list of venture matrix courses to be able to benefit from the scheme.
