Why are students at university so stressed?

theguardian | May 31, 2019

Mounting social and academic pressures mean that higher education can be a challenge for any student. A Uni Health study found that 80% of those studying in higher education reported symptoms of stress or anxiety, while one NUS survey found that nine in 10 students experienced stress.Uncertainty around Brexit and rising living costs mean that many students don’t feel confident about finding a job. Alex, an international relations and politics student at the University of Leicester, says he’s constantly worried about graduate life. “There’s that fear of having to adjust back to life back home. I always think, what sector do I want to work in? How am I going to get work? Is my CV up to scratch?” While his institution offers career guidance, his plans weigh on his mind. Hannah Morrish, a psychotherapist and the higher education lead at The Student Room, says students are increasingly questioning whether university is worth the cost. “The pressure to be successful and get a lucrative job role after graduation is high. Students worry that it won’t work out and they won’t achieve the success or personal return on investment.” She recommends speaking to student advisers about hardship funding and getting a part-time job. “The majority of universities also offer bursaries, grants and scholarships – and many go unclaimed.”
