    Okay, so I'm currently a second year textile student.
    I work between 15 and 19 hours a week as a promo girl. I essentially stand on the street handing out leaflets. This job fits around uni.
    I had an interview on Wednesday for a bar staff position at an new bar opening. I nailed my interview, the interviewer even said that he wouldn't have me handing out leaflets when I have a lot of bar experience. He offered me the job of team leader. A higher position than just bar staff.
    I am totally over the moon because this will be more money and a better job than standing in the cold everyday.
    The only problem is that training for the job is 2 weeks and I'd have to miss uni for it. Only 5 days though. But after the 2 weeks I'll be back at uni as normal.
    Is it worth it? Missing a couple days for a job that will challenge me and make me happy, not to mention the money and the fact I'll be warm haha.
    Or do I turn it down and go to uni and be a cold, unhappy promo girl?
    Im stuck, I can't decide.

    Do what makes you happiest. It seems the job would. If you are confident you can catch up on the work you miss, then go for it.

    This suggests you have decided but you want someone to justify your choice. It depends on your course! How practical is it? You might struggle to catch up if you miss a lot of practical sessions. Any theoretical lectures, could you get a friend to help you out by lending notes? You could inform your tutors as to your absence but it depends on them, whether you think they'd have a serious problem with it or not.

    Depends on the course but I suggest that if you focus and work in your spare time you'd be able to catch up on the uni work. Just make sure not to slack and actually do the work! Maybe talk to a coursemate to see if you could borrow their notes or something to help you too.
