If you happen you happen to be one of them, worry no more. I’ll be exposing you to the money-making strategies while schooling in a Nigerian university.
Today, I’m going to be discussing a few of the numerous ways to make money/earn income as a student in Nigeria.
It’s no news that life in this country is harder than further mathematics and at such we notice our parents lack the capability to give us everything we need/want as a student.
In order not to pile so much pressure on them, it’s important to find a source of income even as you study.
As long as you don’t let is jeopardise your studies, you are good to go.
Without much ado, let’s take a look at some of the ways you can make money as a student
The 6 latest ways to make money as a Nigerian student
1. Teach in a tutorial or start yours
Using the great University of Benin (UNIBEN) as a case study, there are lots of tutorials here and there who are willing to pay either hourly or monthly if you can help tutor their students.
Students tend to enjoy it better because they feel more comfortable asking fellow students questions rather than their lecturers.
You can even go as far as tutoring in jamb and post utme tutorials and earn cool cash.
This is one of the sectors you can branch into if you hope on earning some money as a student in a Nigerian university.
2. Making materials
Materials are in the form of a handwritten textbook.
There are so many courses in the university that do not have a designated textbook. This calls for material to help guide a student.
Students tend to go about looking for any material that covers the course outline of the course.
Funny enough, it doesn’t have to be the entire course outline. Just a part of the course outline and you’ll see students queuing up just to have a copy of that material.
It can also be in the form of solved past questions too.
3. Getting a job in school
There are some few shops in the university who are willing to employ students to work for them part-time and pay them hourly or monthly as the case may be.
As long as this does not clash with your classes, you are good to go.
Examples of these jobs are being a barber for a barbing saloon, being a sales rep for a shop etc.
Believe me, this has helped put cool cash in students pockets.
4. Partaking in politics
Though it has become a very rough game, you can still find a way to get into any of the numerous political position available in the university.
You can get elected/appointed the right way and receive salaries even as you study.
I do not encourage you to steal in office.
5. Be an agent
There are lots of opportunities to be an agent as a student.
The most lucrative is being a hostel agent. Students often want to stay off campus because of many reasons known to them.
Very few find it difficult to get the kind of hostels they desire. This is where you fall in.
You search for good and available hostels, make it known to however is looking for space and get your commission for referring someone. It’s that easy.
6. Online jobs
Saving the best for the last.
