Jobshop:
A student employment agency usually run by the students' union. Apart from advertising vacancies, jobshops are sometime more proactive and actually look for appropriate paid work for students. They also sometimes check that the employer's not a crooked slave-driver and impose minimum pay and conditions. Unlike most job agencies, they usually don't take a cut and often students get work in the jobshop or students' union itself.

Joint Honours:
Not an honours degree in cooking big roasts or rolling spliffs, but, like a combined honours degree a course involving more than one subject. In this case, two subjects.

Junior Common Room (JCR):
Another name for a students' union, but usually quite a modest affair such as in a Oxbridge college of a hall of residence. It's also usually a real common room too for undergrad students.
