Survey of higher education students’ attitudes to debt and term-time working

Report
25 November 2005

This study aimed to investigate full-time higher education students’ attitudes to debt and term-time working and their impact on academic studies and attainment. The findings are based on a postal survey of final year, full-time home undergraduates in seven universities across the UK and on focus groups with students and university staff. 

The postal survey was undertaken during the period March-April 2002, and 1,500 valid questionnaires were returned. 

It should be recognised that the policy context in Scotland and in England and Wales was markedly different and has diverged further since this study was undertaken.
