    I am new here so this might have been done before, sorry if it has.

    As a student, is it hard to get part time jobs that co-incide with the hours you do at university. I am working in a supermarket just now and know I am going to have to leave it when I get to uni as there is no way Im going to make it over in time. I dont really fancy doing bar work either. Is there any other options.

    I work as a part time web developer, although the job is weekdays usualy once a week I am learning stuff directly related to my degree. You might be able to get a part time job that relates to your degree that way it won't effect you're work so much.

    Being a waiter in one of the big city restaurants is THE BEST part-time job you can have at Uni. I worked for TGI Fridays whilst I was at Uni. They are flexible with your rota, so you can get days off when you need them, and the money is the best you can earn... because of the tips. In my final year I was only working 2 shifts a week, and was still taking home £150 a week!

    you can help out with open days at your university, apparently is pays well, or how about being part of the student newspaper? if you're doing a literary course, you'll be learning and it will be valuable experience, esp. if you're interested in the media or journalism.

    Student newspapers don't pay! I think this person is looking for jobs that pay £££s

    Best job you can do while at uni is play online poker. I made £500 this month playing at the $0.50 No limit tables.

    Talking of money making, there's a general knowledge game in Blackburn cinema where you enter £1 and if you answer the question right, you get £15. However, if you're reasonably bright (which is quite rare in Blackburn) a few of you with a broad knowledge you can easily answer the questions right and in an hour make over £200.

    You could get an office job.. probably one of the most boring things you will do in your life.. but it pays better than supermarket/bar work.

    I knew someone who worked in a student bar, but she hated it and quit after a week. Apparently it seemed like a good idea at the time, but isn't as fun when you're sober as students just drink too much and puke everywhere. :rolleyes:

    My Big cousin was the same, he quit after a while as well. Said he'd rather be the one drunk, than the one cleaning up people's puke! yeuch!
