I'm 25. I've been working since age 18. Currently in FT employment in Media and IT but leaving in September to start a computer science course.
About 2 months ago, I applied for a part time position in the civil service (20 hrs, evenings, Monday-Fri) doing admin assist on the CRB checks.I got an invite for assessment and interview today but thinking about it more and more I just worry this is gonna be too much.
My commute to Uni is gonna be about an hour and 10 mins in the first year because I'm doing a foundation year off-campus. I don't know what the time commitments are with regard to the foundation year, but I know I only have to be there for classes, so if I don't have one until 12, I don't need to be in until 12.
I would then have to commute back and pull a 6-10 shift every Mon-Fri.
I'll have the weekends free.
I would really like to do both (Not least because I'll be pulling in £192 a week on top of the maintenance loan) but obviously the course would be more important. Do you think it's doable?Thanks
Tbh sounds like a waste of time. I'd bin the lot if I were you.
I work 20 hours a week along side uni during the evenings so yeah its possible, providing your lectures dont clash =)
I decided it couldn't be done.
I would essentially be working 18 hour days Mon-Fri with no time to either study or relax. I'd be getting up at 6:30 and wouldn't stop until 22:30. The weekend would have been mostly spent recovering from the week.
Much more sensible to opt for a Weekend job somewhere.
