Who is the Modern Student?[12]

Who is the modern student? The athlete with his college scarf? The blue, stocking, cycling to her lecture? The activist hurling abuse at a politician?

These days the students you are most likely to meet are the checkout girl at Sainsbury's or the waiter in your favourite bistro.

The modern student works: "full-time student" no longer means someone who spends time in libraries or lectures, with an occasional vacation job. At many universities, most students have jobs during term-time. At London Guildhall, more than 80 per cent of our students work during term for between five and 25 hours a week.

Why do they do it? For some, it is certainly to fund a car or to finance evenings in the pub. For many, however, whose families are too poor to help, it isto keep body and soul together. Some have a natural aversion to building up alarge debt to the Student Loans Company. Many mature students feel guilty about their wives, husbands or children supporting them during a college course, and work to reduce the burden.

Juggling study with work is hard. It requires skills of time management that would be envied by many management consultants. As one student, Aidan, put it to me: "I need lectures to start at 10am, not because of a party the night before but because then I can use a cheap railcard. I must be away by 4pm to pick up my daughter, leave her with her gran, and get to my eve­ning job. When do I write my essays? Well, there's the weekend and early mornings."

Many students still live in college rooms or halls of residence. But others stay at or close to home, where jobs are easier to come by. Often, they com­mute to classes and live in cramped accommodation, a shared room where there is nowhere to study. There is not enough money for books, let alone acomputer. It is no surprise that they sometimes wonder if they can cope or will be forced to drop out.

1 A modern full-time student is someone who spends time in libraries or lectures.
