Former House of Commons Speaker John Bercow has become a part-time professor of politics at Royal Holloway, University of London, a media report said.

"We can confirm that the Right Honourable John Bercow has joined the Department of Politics, International Relations and Philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London, as professor of politics," a Xinhua report quoted a varsity spokeswoman.

"Professor Bercow will work with undergraduate and postgraduate students on a part-time basis, and will contribute to teaching across the curriculum," the spokeswoman added.

Bercow made his debut on Friday by giving a talk to parliamentary studies students at the institution.

Bercow, who began to run the daily business of the House of Commons in 2009 and kept lawmakers in line with robust cries of "Order", left the Speaker's chair last year and has been replaced by Lindsay Hoyle.

As one of the key jobs in British politics, the Speaker keeps order in the House of Commons debates and calls members of parliament to speak.
