    I just wondered if students have much time to earn money during their studies at uwe

    Well I'm currently at university and the workload is never ending. I do have free time, but it is very limited and doesn't come round very often. However, someone I know has a part time job and it seems to be working for her, so I guess it depends on you really, how organised you are. You know your limits more than anyone else.

    I'm a second year student at UWE; I'd say in first year, there's a lot of flexibility and time around your studies to work. Second year steps up quite dramatically and it quickly becomes very difficult to juggle jobs and studying (at least, if you're aiming for good grades). There was a point in the first semester of this year where I was going to work in the morning, attending lectures in the afternoon and working in the evening, so some of the days were horribly long (I think the worst was 19 hours or something silly).

    I'd advise that you work in the holidays and evenings a bit, but limit yourself to 15ish hours as beyond this, there's not enough time to engage with course materials.

    Hope this helps!
