Even though Coventry is not as expensive as some other major cities in the UK, you might still consider getting a job or having a side hustle. Many students find a job within the university as student ambassadors or university application mentors: apart from gaining some relevant skills such as learning how to handle groups, working under pressure, and managing other students, you’ll gain some extra money that’ll help you to better enjoy your university experience.
Need a side-hustle with maximum flexibility? You could try part-time tutoring or becoming a web writer. Since the pandemic, opportunities to work remotely are now plentiful; the content creation and writing industry are always looking for people for just a few hours per week. According to The Balance (2022), the best platforms to find a job are Indeed (overall), LinkedIn (best for connecting directly with recruiters).
