Hello,

I am currently in the final year of my undergraduate social science degree. This year includes me writing a 12,000 word dissertation, ontop of 4 other modules. However, I have also had to start a 20 hour a week job, because I really need the money. Do you guys/gals think that I can complete an undergraduate degree when working 20 hours a week ? I’m sure I could reduce it to 16 if need be.

Thanks !

20 hours is a lot, & would certainly cut into your ability to take time off. Having time to yourself is certainly important for mental health and not burning out.

That said 20 hours is doable but would require good personal admin. Keep on top of everything, find time every week for your disso & your other modules.

I’d probably say 16 hours would give you that little bit more freedom so I’d probably slim down your side hustle if you can. You need to find a balance which works for you.
