Asked by: Naim
Question: Hey,I'm Naim,from Bangladesh. I wanna know,like can I manage my living expenses (accommodation,meal,internet,transportation etc.) by doing a part time job while studying at SMU? Actually I wanted to cover my living expenses by myself & my tuitions by my dad. Is it possible? Or the living expenses are too high to cover by doing a part time job? Thanks in-advance.

Answer: Hello there, personally I've always juggled numerous jobs my three years at Saint Mary's and without help from my student loans and mom I don't know how I could really afford it. I think trying to work to support yourself on your own and trying to do full time studies is a little much, you really want to focus a good chunk of your time on school to maintain good grades. I would look into a student loan or student line of credit to at least pay for you rent; that way with a part time job (15-20 hours a week) you can afford groceries and out-ings with friends. Hope that advice helps!
