Part Time Work For Students
According to the most recent Natwest Bank Student Living Index approximately 4 out of 10 students will be taking part time jobs during the coming academic year.
Although these student jobs seem to pay relatively low amounts they will add up to around two billion pounds for all those working students, which is enough to help them through Pot Noodles, beans and beer for a little while. In reality students are forced to work because they cannot afford to live without the extra income they generate.
Another fact that students have to face is that they will be looking at an average debt at the end of their tenure of over GBP11,000 according to Natwest Bank figures, something they then have to pay off as they find employment.
