Student Lives in Crisis

Policy Press

This chapter offers an overview of how welfare influences young people’s experiences in university in England, Italy and Sweden. Firstly, this chapter will discuss how these countries reflect the existence of three different systems of student support. Secondly, the chapter will illustrate the different social policy instruments that have sustained the mass expansion of the university experience: from the wide use of loans and tuition fees, to the increasing residual role and means-testing of grants. Finally, this chapter discusses the most recent austerity trends affecting the systems of student support in Europe, which are shifting towards a privatisation (on students and their families) of the costs incurred during university.
