NUS: Students in Wales skip classes to avoid travel costs


Survey highlights cost of living pressures on students at Welsh universities

Almost one in five students in Wales have missed in-person classes to avoid paying for travel during the cost of living crisis, a National Union of Students survey has found.

A total of 16 per cent of the 570 students surveyed said they had skipped classes on campus because of the cost of travel, meaning that they miss out on in-person teaching. Among the students surveyed, 47 per cent said they travel to campus two to three times per week, while 38 per cent said they went in every day and 4 per cent said they went in once per week.
