Hi :P

I work in retail and was wondering if I should quit when I start university next year. I'm on a gap year atm, and my contract is only 12 hours but they often give me more.

Thanks!

Entirely depends on what you study. I worked 30 hours p/w during term time and still got a 2.1, but that's because my course had virtually no contact hours. If I did something like Law or Engineering, I wouldn't have been able to do this.

What you can do is either transfer to another store (if you're going to a uni in a different town), get your manager to make you inactive during the term time or you can either keep your hours or reduce them. I'm currently at uni myself and still have my job

But it's entirely up to you on what you want to do

You're welcome
Tbh I find it's actually not so bad balancing both work and uni at the moment, but if I'd get to that stage where it becomes difficult then I can always reduce my work hours
