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.

Send online CV’s, hand them into business wherever you can. Check sites like e4s and job searching apps HERE.

– 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.

– Tutoring

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.

For more information on how to become a brand ambassador contact companies like Mash Staffing, Beautiful Minds or ID Staffing.

– Be An Extra

Sign up to sites like Be On Screen and Star Now and make a bit of cash by being 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.

Look at sites like Market Force and Mystery Dining to sign up.
