    Ideally you want to work as little as possible at uni. You have to find the right balance between earning enough to keep you going and keeping on top of your studying.
    3-7 Mon-Fri i.e. 20 hours a week is about right in theory, but I'd be inclined to try and alter your hours (maybe some to a weekend if possible).
