Summer job- Oxford/London? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hey guys, so I'm an Oxford international student, looking for a summer job in the UK now and hence seeking some advice- would you suggest looking for something in Oxford or rather London? I'm thinking there may be more job opportunities in London, but on the other hand I'm in Oxford during the term so can ask around plenty of places and hand some CVs in person. Also, it seems that relatively cheap accommodation in Oxford starts not that far away from the centre, whereas in London it's miles away.

    So, do you think Oxford or London? Also, besides the obvious shops/restaurants/cafes/etc. where would you suggest applying? Cheers for any opinions.
Do you think parents should charge rent?
