Has anyone calculated a rough estimate for the value of an undergraduate student's hour? Assume they attend a top UK university, currently are unemployed, and plan to pursue earning to give. Thanks in advance for any info or links!

I think as an undergraduate you have to be very sensitive about marginal time, since that can vary drastically. When you're young, you're at the height of being able to invest in yourself, so I'd make that the number one priority as long as you are able to afford it.

It's not an estimate, just some relevant argumentation, but see Katja's post here. Maybe $30-$150 but it would depend on a lot of factors and I haven't thought about it very hard.
