University students in the U.K. are such a hard time making ends meet that they are to desperate measures. Many have to gambling, taking out high-interest loans and even selling their body to their living costs. The financial website Save the Student (StS) 1,900 students about their finances. It that the average student $750 a month from the government in the form of a student loan. However, average living expenses to $1,170 a month. This leaves a monthly shortfall of $420. Students have up the difference in a variety of ways, some of which would parents a considerable amount of concern.

The StS poll that 71 per cent of students on parents for extra income, while 65 per cent a part-time job. Around 46 per cent to banks for an overdraft. Seven per cent of the students who part in the survey said that they had " their body" to earn additional cash. Others taking part in medical trials for money. Twelve per cent of students said that they had gambling to supplement their income, while three per cent out loans with extortionate interest rates. One student said: "It's frustrating when you're already paying off multiple credit cards at 19." Save the Student said the government loans "out of touch with individual circumstances and student needs".
