    Hi,
    There are literally no jobs in the area I live and thanks to a high household income, my maintenance loan is near the minimum, my parents are against the idea of uni and so are not willing to support me financially.
    My plan was to save though a job now meaning I'd only have to work a few hours a week at uni, however due to there being no jobs where I live, I'm going to have to work quite a few hours at uni.
    At Southampton, UEA or Portsmouth , how easy is it to find a job, are there many jobs going and what is the ideal maximum working hours per week to not affect uni performance ?
    Thanks
    Lee

    Edit : I do not mean in the university itself, I mean in the surrounding areas. If there are jobs at the uni, great ! Also, I will not be driving so jobs quite far from uni are not ideal I would prefer cycling distance but if I need to use public transport I will

    I went to UEA and there are a multitude of shops, bars, pubs, cafes e.c.t in Norwich city centre who take on students part time. Most are cycling distance from the uni and on a direct bus route. From second year you can get work on campus too.

    Brilliant, UEA is more than likely going to be my firm choice and so this information is very helpful.
    Thank you.
