    Now what I'm asking is obviously hard to answer question but one of my friends managed to get a job as web designer in Edinburgh as a first year student. He has some experience in designing stuff but not too much. Are there people in this forum who managed to find part-time work in IT field while studying it at uni?

    My friend told me it's close to impossible but he succeeded...I know Android quite well and currently learning to develop websites.

    It probably tough to get a paid or part time job in IT but its possible to gain volunteering experience in IT check with your career service for help on that.
    There are plenty of volunteering options in here through this website http://www.do-it.org.uk/ Even if you hate volunteering it can help you gain experience and leads to paid jobs that you might have not gotten without the experience and helps with getting proper reference for future jobs. Customer service can be equally important as well so think about getting any jobs that relates to customer service like retail.
