Students - Earn while you learn

Having a part-time, or even a full time job is unavoidable for many students in order to get by at University. 82% have some sort of paid job during term time according to recent surveys. However it can be an aspect of university life that enhances and enriches your experience as long as you manage to find a healthy balance between study and work. Bar work is popular as it can be fitted around your studies easily, requires little responsibility, and often expands your social circle. Think about finding a job that’s related to your degree or to the field you want to work in as this will signal to future employers that you’re committed to that type of work, will give you some vital experience, prove that you can manage your time, and work under pressure.


It’s important to make sure your studies don’t suffer and that you aren’t caused unnecessary stress as a result taking on paid work. A job that requires responsibility on your part may look good on your CV but you must think about the knock on effect on your grades. 76% of London students said taking on a job while at university made it difficult to get a balance between work, life and study. Discuss your university commitments and your exam schedule with your employer. It’s best to clear the air at the start of the job so your employer doesn’t expect more than you can give. His or her response will also give you an idea of whether or not this arrangement will work. Earning while you learn can add to the whole university experience and ease financial hardship, but remember your degree comes first!
