More than 30% of student population experiencing financial difficulties

36% of the student population in Ireland say they’re experiencing serious financial problems.

According to a new report, living costs exceed the average monthly income for students, with accommodation being the biggest expense.

The Eurostudent report also shows that 27% of full-time students work during the whole semester – this increases to 77% of part-time students.
