How to earn being a university student? I am going to be in London soon for my higher studies. I am a gamer here at my country so is there any ways from gaming that I can earn some money and pay my bills at my own.

    You can't send a PM yourself to another member until you have 25 points. You gain points by commenting on threads. Links can be posted providing they're not advertising a paid product.

    If you want to give advice to people then it's always better to do that on the forum rather than through a PM.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Unfortunately you have to have 25 points to send a pm.

    Hi @anawilliam850

    Unfortunately I don't have specialist insight into gaming and earning money from that as a pursuit. I'd recommend giving Scope's 'Finding work' advice page a look when you have time though, as this goes into detail about how to find employment. Also, your university should have an employment team on campus who will advertise roles that will fit around your studies.

    Good luck!

    I think there are different ways to earn money through gaming. Mainly competative playing and small tournaments can earn you small prizes, however these can't be dependant on as it all depends how good of a gamer you are and if you manage to win or not. But prizes on competitive sites can earn you around £100 for a small tournamount or even more if you go into bigger leagues.

    Also game testing is another great way to earn some extra money, but game testing positions go fast as they are popular, but you can get regular income from playing and testing games.

    When I was 18/19 I used to do competative gaming on Call of Duty, and would come away win like £100-200 for winning a few gun game games.
    I have Autism, ADHD, Schizophrenia, Gilberts Syndrome and Crohn's Disease and have knowledge in these areas.
