    Whether you're at sixth form or college, at university doing an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, a distance learning student, or even a graduate: do you or did you previously have to work to support yourself through your studies?

    If so, how many hours did you work? How did this affect your studies, if at all?

    38 hrs work week with full uni schedule. Sucks. 3-4 hrs sleep, but I don't want to borrow from anyone or be in debt when complete. Also, work provides some education reimbursement.

    Couple years. No social life, but will be worth it (I hope) when I have zero debt!
