    You forget you have summer holidays. You also have an overdraft (if you're in a decent industry with good job prospects you're more likely to repay it).

    People assume making an extra fiver an hour 10 hours a week and having savings is the best thing to do - but investing that time into yourself so that you can go onto make more money as a graduate provides a far higher return on investment than any bartending part time gig.
    Yeah you really have given me food for thought, thanks for the advice

    I think you'll be okay managing all that in the first year.
    Might want to tone down after that though.

    What languages are you planning on learning?
    Spanish which I already know a little as I did it at school but have forgotten everything since I dropped it and maybe German. Would like to visit Germany one day, perhaps spend a year on international study there.
