Study shows students work for beer money

October 8, 2009

A recent US study on the impact of work on student academic performance and motivations for working additional hours, revealed that most students do not work to cover tuition, but rather for other expenses, such as beer, entertainment, etc. While some students are likely to work to pay their tuition, the researchers suggest that most students would take out additional loans to supplement what isn't covered by financial aid or parents, rather than work additional hours.  Inside Higher Ed
