Summer has come to London! The heat! The
sun! The Olympics! The week started off
with such promise and the weather hasn’t
disappointed. With a dissertation deadline
looming and writing that needs to get
drafted, the smell of summer distracts for
the joyful celebration of the sporting event
of the year. They’re also known as ‘study
breaks’ as I like to call them.
With my dissertation near completion the
next step of the process comes to light:
internship or part time job? It’s a topic I’ve
struggled with throughout the year. As an
international student, I’m allowed to work
but only part-time during my studies. Once
I’ve submitted my dissertation, I believe my
visa allows me to work full time, as long as
it isn’t a permanent position. This means I
can work on a contract basis, for example
as a full time editor for a newspaper for
three months only.
The whole working whilst you study as an
international student is a bit of struggle to
wrap your head around. Isn’t it enough
work studying in a foreign country? Then
again, who has the ability to not work and
study at the same time? The debate has
been ongoing. In between term breaks I’d
try to tackle the task of transferring my
work skills to the UK standard employment
Curriculum Vitae also known as a CV. Not
every country uses the CV format and is
was a task to ask my friends constantly to
look it over or for their opinion. The CV is
the ultimate gamble because you have no
idea how on the other side is looking at it.
It’s impossible to know what they expect or
want to see unless you know them
As it’s a ‘productive’ use of my time, when I
take breaks from researching, drafting and
editing my dissertation, the next project I
work on is creating a decent CV. The plan is
to apply to roles that are part-time and
located within an acceptable distance of
where my university is.
Where does an international student start
looking for work? It’s certainly not the same
in every country so learn how it relates to

‘Going Green’ has increasingly become
important to more than just the average
consumer in the UK. Businesses and
Universities have been trying to make
changes throughout the years to do their
part for the Earth without compromising
the needs of the staff and students.
This year’s People & Plant awards have been
released and for 2012 they’ve chosen to
categorize universities into sub-leagues to
compare by peer group. Our student editor
Ashley brings you the results.
The 2012 People & Plant Green League
surveyed 145 universities throughout the
UK. They were broken down into
47 -First Class Award
37 – Upper Second Class Award
32 – Lower Second Class Award
16 – Third Class Award
14 – Failed, No Award
8 – Did not participate
Lead researcher for P&PGL Louise Hazan
states, “Despite intense pressures on
university budgets, this year’s results show
how universities are increasingly aware
that going green helps save money and
enhance the quality of education they can
offer their students.”
University of Greenwich
With a score of 55 out of 70, University of
Greenwich scored top marks for
environmental policy, environmental
management staff, environmental auditing

category benefits the students directly as
by buying local they cut the cost on prices
and provide healthy diet options.
University of Plymouth

Plymouth performed better in policy than
overall performance, by providing a

reductions, as well as providing over 60%
of the university’s carbon reductions
targets for 2015. They plan to be a carbon
neutral university by 2030.
University of Brighton

University of Brighton scored 54 out of 70,
and also performed better overall in the
policy category. The university’s
Biodiversity Action Plan first implemented in
2009 were actually able to be put into
action in March of this year by planting 300

this year in September. The focus is on

Higher Education Sector.
Nottingham Trent University

recycling, they recycle 88.97% of its total

Trent University reaches number five with a
score of 53 out of 70. Their focuses is on
food sustainability and were granted the
Silver Food for Life Catering Mark from the
Soil Association for producing over 2000
meals per day that are 90% freshly
prepared with locally sourced and organic

excellent projects that not only seek to
better their students, but the planet as
whole. In providing a better environment
for students and their studies, the end result
passes on life skills to the university
graduates that can assist them in many
future situations in the work force or out.
