This chapter will show how, in spite of the different systems in place, students across Europe face increasingly similar challenges, such as the existence of precarious labour markets and the over-reliance on family resources. The chapter, firstly, discusses how the systems of student support illustrated in the previous chapter increase the existing inequalities depending on: the stratifying effects of debt; the generosity of the support provided; and the inclusiveness of student support. Secondly, it illustrates how relying on family resources can increase inequality among young people in university. Thirdly, it discusses which groups of young people are more dependent on labour-market sources while in university. This part will draw on the findings of a descriptive analysis of the microdata of the Eurostudent dataset from England, Italy and Sweden.
