Student income and expenditure survey
A report showing data for earnings from work, income from family and friends, student spending, savings, borrowing and debts.
- Full-time student income rose by eight per cent in real terms between 2004/05 and 2007/08 to over £10,000 during the academic year.
- However, the bulk of this increase is accounted for by tuition fee loans and grants which are paid direct to the students’ institution.
- Compared with their counterparts in 2004/05, full-time students are less reliant on family and friends for income and more dependent on sources of government financial support, ie loans and, increasingly, grants.
- The total average expenditure of full-time students went up by nine per cent in real terms, driven by an increase in participation costs (including tuition fees).
- However, spending in real terms on living and housing costs has not changed in the last three years.
- Estimated debt levels for full-time students graduating in 2008 were around £7,200. Debt is mainly funded by student loans and the amount borrowed from commercial sources has fallen.
- Income among part-time students has remained steady in real terms, at around £11,700, while overall spending increased by nine per cent in real terms, at £12,430.
