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.

Excelente ubicacion, atencion y servicio. Muy cuidado todo, las recepcionistas siempre ayudando y dando atencion. Lo recomiendo.
I moved to Mayfair Court 3 years ago and we love it here. My apartment is spacious and enlightened by large windows facing Wilmslow road. Commons, including a flourishing inner garden are well kept. Staff are friendly and always there to help, and the community is diverse. Location is very convenient. There’s a bus stop at the foot of the building, a supermarket across the street, Bodey Medical Centre behind the supermarket, and plenty of restaurants and pubs around. I'm happy to call this place our home while in Manchester.
I have been living in Brickworks about 7 months. Brickworks is a great place to live in. The location is really convenient (close to city center, good public transportation, near the supermarket and so on...). The buildings are pretty new (well maintained and very clean) it also offers study rooms, cinema room, gym, roof top party room and terrace. There are a lot of common areas for entertainment (PlayStation, Pool, table tennis...). Additionally, free coffee and tea services are amazing!
Brickworks team all of them are AWESOME. They are always up for helping... I highly recommend the Brickworks for people who need a place to call home... Thanks for everything.
Searched for loads of student accommodation before I found this gem amongst the rest. Really nice sizeable apartments in a great student busy location. Would highly recommend Mezzino.
For a very spacious space with great amenities, the price is very mucb affordable. Good views and great support staff to help out at anytime of the day.
I had an excellent experience living in Brickworks during the last year in Dublin! All the staff members were always very friendly and did everything they could to make people feel welcome and we had a very good atmosphere among the residents. The flats themselves were comfortable and provided excellent living and working space, and the proximity to the city centre means you can experience the Dublin atmosphere. I have met many people and friends that I will take with me for life. If I were to live in Dublin, I would not hesitate to live in Brickworks again, it really was a great place to live!
