Studying and Earning Money

People who work while studying often do so in order to put themselves in a better financial position but also to gain real-life experience to help with their studies and their entry into a career further down the line. Please be aware, however, that studying is a full-time job in itself and, as far as possible, should not simply be fitted in alongside other commitments.
