Policymakers and administrators are making significant efforts to increase the educational attainment of national populations and to respond to the increasing demand for knowledge and skills required in the 'knowledge-based' economy (Lisbon Strategy, European Commission, 2000, 2009; EUROPE 2020, 2010). In many OECD and EU countries, increased demand for education and enrolment in tertiary education (OECD, 2016; EUROSTAT, 2017; Taylor & Raykov, 2014) is evident. Expansion of higher education in industrial countries is characterized by changing student demographics and increased student participation in the labor force (Doogan 2009).
Research in the domain of student employment and learning demonstrates that a significant number of students are involved in paid work during their university or college studies (e.g. Doogan, 2009; Moulin, Doray, Laplante & Street, 2013; Roksa & Velez, 2010) and that such involvement is rapidly increasing in most of the economically developed countries (Ford, Bosworth & Wilson, 1995; Hall, 2010; Van der Meer & Wielers, 2001 ). The research in this domain also shows mixed, inconsistent and limited evidence regarding the influence of student involvement in paid work on their academic achievement (Mamiseishvili, 2010; Swanson, Broadbridge & Karatzias, 2006; Byun, Henck & Post, 2014; Rochford, Connolly & Drennan, 2009) and (non)completion of university (Moulin, Doray, Laplante & Street, 2013; Tyson, 2012).
The literature also shows some limitations of studies on student employment and a paucity of comprehensive and methodologically sound studies of the impact of student employment on different forms of learning (Ford, Bosworth & Wilson, 1995; Johnson, Kaiser & Bell, 2012; Manthei & Gilmore, 2005). A large number of research studies examine part‐time employment among university students, but research in this domain rarely explores the experience of various groups of tertiary education students and the relationships between the intensity of work and the time they spend on classwork and personal study time.
The current study aims to examine some of the individual and social factors that influence student involvement in full-time and part-time paid work and different forms of learning activities. It seeks to provide empirical evidence that can serve as a base for the creation of measures that can improve student learning experience, the outcomes of learning, transitions, and employability.
