YOUTHSIGHT IN THE NEWS – THE INDEPENDENT & THE SCOTSMAN – STUDENTS SHUN BOOZE IN FAVOUR OF COFFEE

Posted on 22nd February 2016 by Youth

Coffee not booze

YouthSight research was covered extensively in The Independent and The Scotsman

The YouthSight survey of 1,000 undergraduates found that the most useful services for students were the clubs and societies (60 per cent), advice and support (50 per cent) and café facilities (43 per cent), with only 37 per cent identifying bars as the most useful service. Coffee shops and cafés were the most-used service (87 per cent), the union shop (81 per cent) and clubs and societies (78 per cent) were the services most used by students, ahead of bars (74 per cent).

 

Richard Brooks, NUS vice president for union development commented, “Ten or 15 years ago people went to university, obviously to learn something but also to make friends and have a good time. A lot of policy-makers think it’s still like when they were at university, but since the introduction of the £9,000-a-year fees regime in 2012 students have become much more focused on employment prospects.

The research was also covered in trade titles Big Hospitality, Eat Out Magazine and The Drinks Business
