By BzDani 14 Aug 2017

Having a job during uni may seem daunting and horrible, but it's actually very beneficial for both your bank account and your future.

Not everyone wants to work and study, but it's something you should consider before your bank account goes into the negatives...

Here are the top 10 reasons why you should get a job at uni:

  1. Money

  2. Budgeting
