Managing your budget is one of the hardest parts of university life, especially if you are living solely off your student loan.
Scrambling around for change to buy anything but a supply of 8 pence noodles is no way to live.
Here are some ideas to make an extra bit of dough…
– Get A Job
The most obvious way to deal with uni money woes would be to get a job of course.
University cities are full of bars, cafes, shops and endless other opportunities for occasional and part-time employment.
– Do Some Freelance Work
Doing a bit of freelance work will bring in some extra money as well as gaining a bit of work experience before you look for that post-grad job.
Do you have a particular skill you could teach?
Use your knowledge and you could earn around £15-£35 an hour depending on what you are teaching of course.
– Promo Work
Becoming a brand ambassador is a great way to earn some good money. This can be anything from handing out food samples to doing live demo’s using the product/ingredients.
– Be An Extra
– Mystery Shopping
The demand for mystery shoppers is growing with around 50,000 mystery shopping trips being carried out each month here in the UK alone.
You are required to complete a thorough report after your trip but the prices vary depending on the job.
They can range from just a few pounds to over £100.
