Top Ten Easy Ways for Students to Make Money

Posted 1 October 2013 by Owen Burek, founder of Save the Student
Making money as a student isn’t always easy, but there are some great ways to boost your income in your spare time whilst at university. Some are about capitalising on your own experience and expertise, others are as simple as selling off any unwanted items.
Here's my list of the top 10 easy ways for any student to start bringing in much needed extra cash!

Exchange clutter for cash

We're all guilty of a little hoarding – from CDs, clothes and books, to old DVDs and games. But all that clutter gathering dust in wardrobes, drawers and cupboards could be great little earners (while also freeing up some space).
Buying and selling sites like Preloved let you advertise for FREE, reaching millions of potential buyers who will turn the stuff you no longer want into cash.

Online surveys

An increasingly popular way for students to make money is to fill out online surveys in their spare time. Research companies are always recruiting new members to answer surveys and test new products.
For a few minutes of form-filling, you can bring home a couple of quid which is paid as cash or in rewards. You can make up to £3 for some surveys!
Some of the better ones to get started with are: TolunaSpringboardMySurveyPinecone ResearchValued OpinionsInbox PoundsNew VistaYouGovGlobal ePanel.
Also sign up for Swagbucks.com which rewards you for surveys as well as simply surfing the web, watching videos and playing games.
Check out the Save the Student full guide to the best paid online surveys.

Claim tax back

Many students work part-time or during the summer months, and others will be on placements or paid internships. More often than not, if you are a student working during the year, you will be overpaying income tax.
Why? Simply because few students reach the personal tax-free income allowance each year but are put on an emergency basic tax-code by their employers meaning tax is being paid when it shouldn’t be.
Use this student tax-back service to help you reclaim any tax you should not have paid. Just enter your details in the calculator to work out what you may be owed.

Place adverts on your car

If you have a car, start making it pay back! Uni Car Ads are currently recruiting student drivers and will pay you £30 – £60 a month for having a temporary advert placed on your car.

Get a part-time job

A part-time job is the obvious first choice, opted for by most students looking to supplement their student loan. It provides a pretty steady flow of income and can enable you to gain valuable work experience.
However, depending on where you live, jobs are not always easy to find.
Check local classifieds, this student job searchstudent job website and your University careers service for vacancies.
It’s also worth signing up with the Graduate Recruitment Bureau, a free service which will match you with both part-time jobs and longer-term graduate opportunities.
Read the Save the Student guide to finding a part-time job whilst studying for more tips.

Review music

If you love music, make it your business by reviewing unsigned bands and artists for cash. I know… we couldn’t believe it either.
The site is called Slicethepie which is free to join. It can take a while to build up your reputation but some users of the site have said that they have earned £40 a month. This may not sound like much but if it’s something you enjoy then it shouldn’t be hard work and is another thing for your CV.
Money you earn will be in $US but anyone can sign up and review. To get started, head over to Slicethepie now.

Start a website

If you’ve ever seen the film “The Social Network” then you’ve most likely had your brain spinning as to what website you can start-up to make you billions.
And of course there are lots of stories out there about successful students who have started a site while at university, or even bought a domain name for a fiver and later sold it for thousands.
In fact, Save the Student is one such example of a website which I started at university in my first year, which has since grown into a full-time and successful enterprise.
Read my 4-step guide to setting up a website if you’re interested in finding out more. It’s really not that difficult to get started and there are plenty of opportunities to make money online.
Similarly, Ian Buzer started his site, www.preloved.co.uk, in 1998. It was designed to be a small, friendly site for enthusiasts to buy, sell and chat about all things secondhand. The site is now the UK's largest independent classified site with over 10 million visits every month.

Find Financial support

Make sure you have applied for all relevant university grants and bursaries. There may be a few hundred quid in it!
It’s money that you don’t even have to pay back and a lot of students are eligible for a scholarship or bursary without even knowing it. Don’t miss out!

Be an Extra

Do you fancy yourself as a budding young actor or just that person that walks past in the background shot of an episode of Eastenders? It could be you if you apply to be an extra.
The pay isn’t bad either – £60-80 a day on average, and you hardly have to do anything!
You can apply at Be On Screen for a number of opportunities or 2020 casting is another agency (just know they take a cut from your earnings).

Sell your photos

If you think you’ve got a good shot and a little creativity, try uploading your photographs for free to stock websites. A good starting point is Fotolia or istockphoto.
Make more money selling photo subjects that people are demanding, and there’s a great resource to find this out here. It might be a good idea to test them out in print first yourself (get free photo prints here).
These are 10 of the easiest ways for students to make a bit of money, but there are, of course, plenty more! Head over to this Save the Student list for more than 25 other ways to make money as a student. It’s updated pretty much every week with the best ones, and feel free to suggest your own!
