Hi

I just wondered if 14 hours a week is too many to work at uni? I'm expecting my timetable to have around 12 contact hours. The work would be working on one weekend day and a couple of evenings.


Thanks

It depends on your course, honestly, and how much you want to be working/studying for it. How many hours would you be working in the evenings?

For me that would be too much. I work a maximum of 8 hours during term time. Any more than that and it takes away from time doing research etc.

Not gonna lie, you don't know your timetable yet. Scheduling that kind of work and committing to it might be a really bad idea. You might also need that time to study.
Perhaps look into less working hours in a week?

My employer said that when I get my timetable they'll be flexible with when i'm working, those working hours are what I am doing now over summer.

How many hours of study do you do and how many contact hours do you have?

During first year I had 11.5 timetabled hours of lectures and workshops. I studied for 2 or 3 hours a day.
