how many part times job do you think is manageable?
Hi Ciel, It all depends on your circumstances and how well you manage your time. I currently have 3 small part-time jobs while on summer holidays for uni and this is manageable as I can pick and choose when I work. However, because I have more than one job I have had issues with tax and will now have to wait until the next tax year until I can get a tax rebate because I work more than one job.

are you a law student and are you planning on keeping those three jobs during the academic year? how many hours will you work a week?

do you do extracurriculars as well?

OP i would say if you're well organised and catch onto things quickly you *maybe* have time to work 12 hours a week, less if you want to do other 'law' things like volunteering (there should be opportunities), law events, student societies, mooting, and also have a bit of leisure time. personally think if you don't currently have a job that you wish to keep and you're not desperate for money i would wait till you settle in a bit, see what your schedule is like and what to expect from law school. jmho

Don't work during your degree unless it's an absolute necessity to allow you to be clothed and fed. If you absolutely have to work, find one job that is relatively close to campus or your accommodation and stick to it.

This. There's just so much to balance in first year and OP doesn't want to end up in a position where they're on here crying about having the wrong priorities and getting a 2.2 in first year (it happens too often).

Weird that you have basically the same username as someone else, anyway I wouldn't suggest doing more than 20hrs a week.

How many hours would you say to spend working on your course a day? In first year that is.

Hi, I hope you are well!

How many part time jobs you have whilst studying is pure preference! I had one to begin with for 8 hours a week when I started my degree but increased my hours when I found out about work load and how much time I would need to be studying to stay ahead in my studies.

Hope this helps.
