Do you have anything
set aside that you could bring with you to university? If you have a
part-time job before you arrive at Plymouth, try to put a little away
each month to boost your income.
Many students work
a few hours a week to boost their income and support their budget, but
you need to plan this around your lectures and make sure your job
doesn’t impact on your studies.
Get in touch with our student jobs service – a dedicated service which allows you to
register online and receive email alerts with job vacancies that match
- Set up the right bank account
get a free overdraft with your student bank account? If you overdraw
past your limit you may have to pay bank charges. You should avoid
credit cards that banks offer you when you open the account, as it’s
likely they’ll have high interest rates for monthly repayments. See our
advice on bank accounts.
Ask for gifts of money and vouchers to support your social life and food bills.
