The article reports on a study which aimed to examine to what extent students' academic performance is affected by their part-time, term-time employment and to explore individual perceptions of the phenomenon using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The study was conducted during the academic year 1999/2000 and involved full-time undergraduates from the BA in Business Studies programme at the University of Brighton. A total of 12 semi-structured individual interviews were conducted and a quantitative dimension was included to provide a more objective picture to the student perceptions. The key findings are discussed under the following headings: issues for the students; issues for the academic staff; issues for employers; issues for the institution.
