    The easiest option would be to work in retail. Although alternative to this would be to work as a freelancer this way you can get holidays whenever you want. I know many students who are getting work through freelancing websites.

    When I was a student I worked in a call centre. I picked which shifts I wanted to do and could chose between 3 hour or 6 hour shifts over 7 days. Got time and a half on Sundays and after 7pm. Think it was £7 an hour which was big bucks back in 2009 haha. I didn't make enough to live off but it was a bit of extra money. It was very boring though.*

    For my first year of uni my loan didn't cover my rent and had to be supplemented by around £200 termly, so I didn't have much choice but to get a part time job. I work as a bartender at the moment and that fits really well with my uni schedule, because I have the days to work on uni stuff and then in the evenings I'll go to work, which brings in enough to see me through food, rent, etc. One thing I would say though is that while I really enjoy it, the hours are unsociable (I have to make sacrifices for things like nights out with housemates) but it's been a huge boost to my confidence working there are I've found chatting to people has gotten an awful lot easier. If you don't mind some late nights and a little extra tiredness I'd recommend bar work completely
