Being a student can be cost consuming and you may find out that your running low on funds. So here are a few ways that you could help you earn some cash while you’re studying.


1. Get a part-time job

A part time job is a great way to earn some money as it students. Now this is quite an obvious solution but it is also a very good one as it allows you to earn some money at work while also having time to study and have some free time to yourself to relax. So if this is the option for you, go and hand out your CV and get some face-time with decision-makers, or scour sites like for part-time jobs in your university town or city.

Remember that, as a student, you will have to pay Income Tax if you earn more than your Personal Allowance of £204 a week or £883 a month, and National Insurance if you earn more than £155 a week (figures given are for the 2015/16 tax year). Find out more from the website.



2. Become a freelancer

The growth in outsourcing and social media mean there’s never been a better time to freelance, with an estimated 1.4 million freelancers working across all sectors in the UK.

If you work for yourself, you will need to fill in a Self Assessment tax return each tax year, with details of your income and expenses. HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) will then work out how much tax, if any, you need to pay.



3. Enter competitions

There are so many competitions out there which allow you to win yourself a bit of cash or maybe even food supply for a month which will help you save money for that period. Entering a competition is usually easy and you have nothing to lose in the process. You may even find that you win a trip to somewhere exotic!

Just make yourself a few flyers and posters and stick them up around local shops and around university and see if anyone would like to use your tutoring skills. You can even use some tutoring platforms like On top of the money, it can be pretty rewarding to know that your helping out someone other than yourself.



5. Review music for money

So, if you enjoy listening to music and don’t mind writing some short reviews, then this can be a nice little earner (netting you up to £40 a month).

For the quite appetising fee of around £60–£80, you can use sites like to become one of those random people lurking in the background of a scene.
