Therefore, I am sharing some of the ways you can make money as a student in London.

  • As a student in London, you can make extra money by answering survey questions online.

It is an easy way and includes less stress in making money. You could sign up on sites like Lifepoints, Surveyswap, Toluna, InboxPounds, Swagbucks, iSay and YouGov where surveys are sent to you, and you fill them and get paid. Though you might not earn so much while you are doing this.

To sell off fast, you should check the prices of the items on eBay with your mobile phone before buying them from the charity shop, that way you would know if it would profit you.

You could also sell your old stuff off at eBay, choose the best price and also take bids easy way to let go of some things you don’t need again and make money out of them.
