So my parent earn around £23k combined and I was given £8500 maintenance loan and £9000 for the uni fees (Im in Wales if that changes anything).
If I find a full time job now, before going to uni will I have to report it to student finance and they will reduce my loan or will be eligible for a smaller loan next year? I won't have time to work during study bc my course is very time intensive, so my question is, would it be worth for me to work now before going to uni or will they just end up reducing my loan next year?
Is it worth it to find a summer job before uni? Watch

Should not change anything..? and even if it does you don't tell them.
Working in summer is crucial.... As while everyone at Uni throughout the year are poor you can still get the Kebab deal for 5.99.

Your own earnings make no difference to your SF. A bit more in the savings pot is never going to be a bad idea. Plus it's good to have something on your CV - even if it's a shop job which has no bearing on your desired post-uni career, it might still generate a reference which comments on your reliability, honesty, work ethic etc.
Having said that, do make sure that you get some kind of break, so that you start uni fresh.
