Considering part-time work alongside your degree? Wanting to develop new skills through a paid internship?

Let’s celebrate the significant contributions, dedication and expertise of outstanding students at the KCLSU (King’s College London Students’ Union) Awards 2017.
If you know someone who’s done fantastic work and made a real impact on our community, nominate them (or encourage them to nominate themselves) for a KCLSU award here by 5pm on Friday 7 April.
You’ll find full details of the categories and criteria on the website here, and if you have any questions or concerns email AwardsSeason@kclsu.org
This year we’re celebrating Crowns & Colours and the KCLSU Awards in one event – a great night to celebrate students’ achievements with peers and VIPs at the prestigious KCLSU Awards 2017 ceremony, held from 7pm on Tuesday 30 May 2017 at De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms.
With a bigger venue and more options, this year all students will have the chance to book tickets and attend the awards, with a choice of drinks reception or a three course meal with wine. Tickets go on general sale from 14 April.
This scheme will run as a pilot during the year 2017 and is subject to review over the summer. If successful, there may be an opportunity to roll this out wider across the campuses. Space is limited and allocation will be offered on a needs basis.
Do you have questions about working in the UK after study?
Working In The UK After Study: Tier 4 Visa Holders: March 20th , 14.00
This webinar is aimed at students on a UK Tier 4 visa who are considering working in the UK after their studies. It will look at the current immigration rules and regulations for Points Based System routes, including Tier 2 (General), Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) and Tier 5 (Government Authorised Exchange). We will also discuss employability and career planning in this context. Connect to the webinar here: https://thecareersgroup.adobeconnect.com/ukworkafterstudy/

WORKING AFTER YOUR STUDIES – FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
PhD students who are nearing the end of their studies can apply to stay in the UK for a further year under the Doctorate Extension Scheme, which comes under the Tier 4 route. The Doctorate Extension Scheme (DES) is designed to give PhD graduates from outside the EU the opportunity to work in the UK for a year once they have completed the PhD. Students who hold this visa can undertake most forms of work on a full or part-time basis, including self-employment, but cannot work as a doctor or dentist in training or a professional sportsperson or coach.
Students interested in applying for the DES are advised to start thinking about their application a couple of months before they need to apply. A new CAS from King’s is required for the DES application, and it is recommended that students request this CAS at the same time as their viva, or just afterwards. Together with completing the online CAS request form, students must also complete a declaration form, agreeing to respond to King’s monitoring emails during your time on the Tier 4 (DES) visa.
Please note: you cannot apply for the Tier 4 (Doctorate Extension Scheme) from outside the UK.
As a result of feedback received from King’s postgraduate researchers about available desk space for writing-up, the university are offering doctoral students the chance to apply for a dedicated desk space for a limited period in a reserved area of the Maughan Library.
Successful students will be offered their own desk and locker within a designated quiet space for a period of 3 months.
To be eligible, you must be a registered doctoral student at King’s who either:
Has registered for writing-up status
Has submitted an RD1 examination entry form to the research degrees examinations office which has been approved (you must provide proof of approval)
Or, is currently undergoing corrections for thesis resubmission following examination (you must provide an examination report as proof)
The expectation is that you will be continuously writing-up your doctoral thesis and will use the space at least 3-4 days a week.
To apply you will need to complete an online application form and request a supporting statement from your supervisor. Four competitions will run over the year and the deadline for the first round is 15th February 2017. For full details, please click here.
Please note that this scheme will be run as a pilot during the year 2017, and is subject to review over the summer. Space is limited and allocation will be offered on a needs basis.
Nominations are now open for the King’s Doctoral Students’ Association (KDSA). You have until 12 noon on Friday 17 February to nominate yourself. You can find out how the nomination process works and which positions are up for election here: https://www.kclsu.org/elections/
The KDSA is the representative body for PGR students at King’s and plays a vital role in acting as a link between staff and fellow students. Being part of the KDSA is brilliant for your CV and for developing transferable skills such as communication, negotiation, leadership, organisation and presentation. Further information about the KDSA can be found at https://www.kclsu.org/studentreps/kdsa/
