    I guess that has more negative connotations though.

    "Saving money" is probably the best term to be honest. :yep: All the other terms don't have the right meaning or have connotations.

    during my gap year I intend to acquire money for university.

    Is it just me or does that sounds like you are planning on stealing it or getting it through ill gotten means?

    As a PS helper, I gotta say you don't want to put that in your PS anyways! It's not a good use of space - the university cares about how suited and enthusiastic you are for the course, and that is what the PS has to sell. Talking about saving money is pretty much a waste of space (yes, it's an important thing, but it's just not something you put in a PS). Instead talk about what you're doing in the gap year that's relevant to your course / to uni (even if it's just becoming independent or learning a bit more about the rest of the world).
