    It's ****ing ridiculous, I'm studying finance and I have 6pm lectures everyday. I need a part-time job at uni. My family life is ridiculously bad, I need to NOT rely on my parents as much as possible. I just don't know what I'm going to do when I'm just stuck in lectures and seminars basically every ****ing day

    Maybe talk to your unis about getting funding considering your circumstances. Or look into working in a bar where shifts would start later

    ...are you in college from 9-6 during the day or do your lectures start at 6? If the latter, what's stopping you working during the day for a few hours.

    You need to look at your timetable and see where you could free up hours to work. If you can. Another option would be to get seasonal work during holiday time only.

    Kind of... Some deadlines are approaching. I'll apply to everything and see what I get. The thing is I really need the money. My parents are well off so I only get the minimum loan. But they are horrible horrible horrible people. I studied so hard during A levels and ended up with A*A*A so I could get away from them. I want to be independent from them, I don't want to go back home during the holidays, it makes me so sad.

    Also note that timetables change as semester changes. You may be in luck next term.

    Look into working for the uni, such as a job like student ambassador, helping with admin etc. A lot of unis have jobs like these for students and they're 0 hours so you take the jobs you can do, as opposed to being stuck with a certain amount of hours when you may not be able to do them.
