    I will start a Computer Science degree in King's College London (hopefully) this September. I am an international student so I pay like £15200 for school so it's so goddamn expensive. I am planning on working and at least paying for my own accomodation if not for school so my parents can relax a bit.

    What are my chances of getting a job that pays around £700 per month in London? I am thinking of getting a job at Starbucks would it be easy to find a job as an international student immigrant? please help

    ummm impossible because you can only work upto 20 hours a week that alone isnt even considering how long its going to take to find a job theirs a lot of unemployed people around. if you get like minimum wage *20 and *4 for the month you aint going to ever reach 7000. unless you work illegally....

    You can look for a job at KCL, a lot of students tend to work for their own universities. I think it is the best thing you can do.

    Another idea is to teach your native language to other students; if you charge 20-30 pounds per hour, you can easily reach 600-700 ppm. But of course, you have to prepare a proper work plan.

    sorry not 7000 but even 700.

    6.5*20 (hrs per week)*4(weeks in a month) = 540

    you cant make 700 a month unless you do off the book stuff as th person above described but im not so sure how easy it is to find those kinds of stuff.
