Prague, Oct 14 (CTK) – Each sixth Czech university student is facing serious or very serious financial problems, according to the survey Eurostudent VI conducted in the spring and released on Friday.

It comprised a sample of 16,653 students of public, private and state universities.

Financial problems are mostly faced by students over 30, as some 30 percent said so.

The financial difficulties of old students may be associated with their losing student advantages at this age. Sometimes they have to pay for the prolongation of their studies, pollster Jakub Fischer said.

Descendants of parents with higher education and a good social background are less likely to face financial problems.

Students of art are most afflicted by the difficulties, while the students of economic branches have the best financial situation, Fischer said.

University students need on average 8.622 crowns a month for their studies and livelihood, they said.

Fischer said caution was needed when evaluating the data. These are just rather rough estimates, he added.

The students of law have the biggest sums available to them, 10.640 crowns a month.

The worst situation is among students of health, medical and pharmaceutical branches who only have less than 7.500 crowns a month.

This is due to the fact that their studies consume much more time than other fields of study.

Less than one-quarter of these students work regularly, while roughly one-half of the students of economic fields do so.

One-sixth of the students said they could not afford their studies without the jobs.
