About the Event :

In this session, we'll share the findings from our January 2021 survey, completed by 1,000 university students across the UK.

The research focuses on how money worries impact students and their mental health.

Background

Mental health and financial wellbeing, especially in the lives of students, influence and crucially impact each other. Yet they are rarely addressed as equals.

While many students faced significant financial pressure long before, COVID-19 has amplified the precariousness of their finances. This financial unease has come into sharper focus as traditional sources of income for students, such as family supplements or paid work, can no longer be relied upon.

We know financial wellbeing is aligned with wider physical and mental health, and broader life satisfaction. We wanted to better understand how money worries and the confusion about available support impacts students. We commissioned research to find out; this webinar will present the findings.

Key findings

  • Can students afford to stay at university? Do they need to defer or drop-out?
  • How big is the gap between what students need and what they have?
  • How has financial wellbeing affected the student mental health crisis?
