Hi, how I can save money and make money while in university? Really thinking of getting through university without relying on my parents as I don't wish to add on to their expenses?

Gonna study business in NTU this coming August. Applied for scholarship but with poor A-level results, I doubt I might be able to get it. Heard of tuition fee subsidies which might help in a way. Many thanks to all the valuable advices in advance!

    Here's what I did:

    1. Get an internship that pays and allows flexible hours.
    2. Give private tuition in the evenings and weekends.
    3. Save on your spending. With all the time you are spending working, giving tuition and studying, it is not likely that you have time for recreational activities.

    That was in a nutshell my life throughout my uni years. I would study from 12am to 3am for exams, sleep, then wake up to get to 830am class the next morning, and do my internship job remotely between lectures, then give private tuition from 7-10pm. Then I would have dinner, head home, and start studying again to 3am.

    Thankfully it paid off - I got enough to cover my tuition fees, my living expenses and also with some savings left over!

      Hi!
      The first option that you have is to take up a paid internship, but this will consume a significant amount of your time and you may not have too much spare time while pursuing your course.

      The other option is to make some investments and earn a good return. You can make use of a robo-advisor, which will develop an optimal portfolio for you based on your financial goals and risk appetite.
