Working part time whilst studying- Pro’s

I am currently in my penultimate year at university and I work 7 hours a week part time. Although, I get to take up extra hours whilst on holiday to earn the extra dollars! As a student, I understand the struggle of balancing!! Hence why I’ve decided to write this post to help inform you so you can make the best decisions for yourself. Now let me begin! 🙂 


  • You earn extra money, so that means you can invest your Student Finance into more important aspects of your life such as driving, saving or a personal project
  • You use your spare time to help develop your skills so you are becoming more of a well-rounded candidate- working part-time in retail requires: interpersonal skills, teamwork, organisation and motivation
  • You get an extra reference
  • Gives you an insight into the real working world, so you value your days off and use them more productively
  • You think more about your future i.e what you’ll be doing after you graduate
  • You meet cool customers and colleagues 😀
