Every employer asking for experience, right? And job hunter after uni is tough. How are you supposed to have at least one year experience within the field when you just got your bachelor’s degree?
Well, we are talking about the UK. Of course, they thought about it. As previously mentioned, every university has partners: companies, agencies, brands, non-profitable charities, etc. Throughout the year, these partners create opportunities for students. It can be internships, entry level positions, or volunteering job. So, while going to university and mastering your skills, why not taking the opportunity to gain real-world experience as well?!

Financial support from the government
We are 99.9% sure that you heard about Student Loan. Student Loan (or student grants) help you pay your tuition fee and living costs.
The advantage of the loan is that you only start to pay it back after completion of the studies and only when your yearly income exceeds the £25,000 threshold, when you will only have to repay 9% of the amount that exceeds this threshold.
Oh, there’s something else we should mention in terms of financing solutions – SCHOLARSHIPS.
Government loans are not your only ways to fund your dream. In this sense, go for it and apply for a scholarship or a bursary. Every university offer merit-based, social or sport scholarships. Indeed, it won’t fully support you living in the UK, but their value is generally ranging from £1,000 – £5,000.
