What university students value

A survey of 1,000 students by the NUS has found that student life has changed hugely over the last 10 years, with sales of alcohol plummeting, whilst the sale of hot drinks were up 10% last year alone. The survey found that the most valued services were clubs and societies (60%), advice and support (50%) and cafĂ© facilities (43%); only 37% said the bar services provided were important. Cafes and coffee shops were the most used service (87%), followed by clubs and societies (78%), with 74% saying they used the union bars. Richard Brooks, NUS vice-president for union development, said, “A lot of policymakers think it’s still like when they were at university, but since the introduction of the £9000 fee regime in 2012, students have become much more focused on employment prospects”.
