    Hi guys,

    I've been offered this job for 16 hours a week and I'm not sure what to do.

    I do have plenty of free time as I go in for 15 hours top per week but, I usually study to keep on top of stuff if I don't have assignments.

    16 hours is too much. I'd recommend no more than 10 hours.

    Okay thanks.

    I'm still swaying between ideas. I don't usually even revise until 1 in the afternoon on my off days so early morning shifts are possible.

    Apparently, I can work 2 or 3 days a week, just as long as I do 16 hours.

    I think 16 is fine, but of course it depends what year of study you're in

    I would say that 16 is fine in first year ; I worked well over 20 hours a week and still passed my degree(after all it doesn't count) but in second year I would recommend no more than 10. Wayyyyy too much work

    Okay thank you. I'm aiming for a minimum of a 2:1 and the course is mainly coursework not exam based. So it's just finding time for stuff really.

    I think you are right. Usually they call you when they need help. They can call you on lecture or when you study.

    Exactly, so doesn't seem very sustainable.

    They can but you can also reject the hours they ask you to do.

    I don't think you should be doing any more than 12 hours a week whilst studying
