One thing I love about Goldsmiths is the variety of ways you can earn money around campus. As someone who likes saying yes to anything and everything and who has been in her overdraft for almost a year now, I know firsthand the pain of being strapped for cash and wanting to do something about it.

So, I am here to offer you some tips on how to make some ~easy money~ around university based on my own personal experiences (desperation).

DISCLAIMER: All of these have been tried and tested by myself, and if there are more easy ways to make money - please leave a comment below!


1. Psychology experiments

Just like many other universities, we have a psychology department! They are located in the Whitehead Building and Ben Pimlott Building and regularly advertise psychology experiments on posters and flyers across university. Being a veteran 'experiment participant' in my gap year back in Oxford meant I could make as little as £10 for an hours worth of my time or even as much as £120 for regular visits!

At Goldsmiths, participating in psychology experiments will reward you with on the spot payment from £10+ and sometimes even extra compensation, like food! 

Look out for these experiments
