    I'm lucky in that I live in a cheap city for students and get a good amount of student finance that I didn't need to get a job. But any time I wanted a bit of extra money without the commitment of getting a job I just did dog sitting.

    Have a look into Matched Betting


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    During my second year of Sixth form, Matched betting made me over £500. When you consider I spent about 10mins a day on it, is pretty great tbh.

    More people need to try matched betting, it's a paid service but even on the free trial you can make upto £40 for free.

    You inspire me. I'm about to start uni and was thinking of ways I could make money. I can't believe this never occurred to me before.

    I haven't been to university (the course I need is international and comes with a lot of associated costs)
    one of my friends ran a sales business in university that focused on his interest so he was buying and selling DVDs and gaming stuff mostly but you can tweak it to your own interests I have met quite a few people in university who would sell jewellery, watches, makeup, cars, bikes and luxury clothes even

    Hello

    Interesting question, I like it :curious:

    For myself, during First Year I didn't have to do anything for extra money - student finance was enough to support me throughout the entire year. However, every now and again, "The Bank of Parents" had to be used. During Second Year my student finance dropped and my parents supported me again but during this summer and Third Year, I have a part time job with hours that work around my course.

    Thank you for the interesting question! :gthumb:
