Hello, I am currently studying Law in my first year and usually before you go into university you are interested in meeting many new people, forming relationships, socialising and getting a job. Well, my main concern now is finding a job, I am on my way to having one, however, will I be able to study and manage my job effectively?

I am only expected to study 4 days a week (excluding Fridays) and work every weekend for a few hours in the evening.

This won't be my first job, I have an evening job before twice a week (during weekdays after school), this one is also twice a week, during the weekend.

My aim is to work whilst also getting a good grade of course.

Can I have some advice, please?

Thank you for your time^^~~

As long as you organise your time with your studies, and keep on top of your work, then you should be fine having a job.

WOW I would like to learn from you! How do you do it, what is your schedule like for the week? Do you work on weekends or weekdays? Is your job hard?

Thank you, your comment pretty much motivated me.

Uni is 10 hours a week, I have a voluntary HR job (my field of work) on a Tuesday and the uni have employed me in a project, to ring up graduates and see what they are doing for statistics 5 nights a week. It's hard but I am so driven and it's going to do me wonders in the future. I always need to do something. I read the nights before the lessons and complete my assignments on the weekends. If you have good time management you can do it also

That is amazing, how many hours do you study independently a week?

It's suggested by the uni 4 hours per module every week (reading prior and summarising after) I do 2 hours reading for each of 5 modules or however long it takes to understand it. What do you do are you in university?
