As I mentioned in my budgeting blog, one of the best ways to increase your income whilst at university is to get a part-time job.
Studying at university is all great and then you think ‘do I have enough money’. It’s very easy to spend money when it’s there but, whilst studying at university I soon realised the value and importance of the pound sterling. This is where I began to organise part time work alongside studying.
When I go back to my first year, I remember that the reality check showed I needed a part-time job to cover all of my costs. Money were flying away as it was the year of exploring Worcester, travelling around England, my new home, attending many social events and buying all the books I needed for my course.
