Stu­dents to feel the pinch

THE (Times Higher Education) - - NEWS -

French stu­dents are fac­ing above-in­fla­tion rises in the cost of liv­ing, par­tic­u­larly in ma­jor univer­sity cities, the coun­try’s na­tional stu­dents’ union has warned. Ris­ing costs come as the gov­ern­ment is cut­ting back on rental sub­si­dies. This com­ing aca­demic year, stu­dent costs are set to rise by 2.1 per cent, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional Union of Stu­dents of France, triple the rate of in­fla­tion, and sig­nif­i­cantly more than in 2015 and 2016. In the ma­jor stu­dent cities of Paris, Lyons, Stras­bourg, Angers and Rennes, both rent and trans­port costs are go­ing up, re­ported France’s The Lo­cal.
