August 17, 2010

In a new poll, 57% of Canadian PSE students say they plan to work during the academic year in order to help pay the bills. 77% of students believe working part-time during school will impact their grades, while 60% expect to graduate with debt and 74% do not use a budget. Two-thirds of students surveyed feel that worrying about money will have an impact on their grades. Respondents who say they will work during school plan to rely on their summer savings (49%), scholarships and bursaries (40%), and their parents (39%) to support themselves. RBC News Release
