Hit by inflation: Many Indian students are leaving classes and doing part-time jobs, not eating one meal
Indian students' dream of getting higher education in the UK is being shattered. A quarter of the nearly 4.5 lakh Indian students are at risk of dropping out due to rising inflation. Around 1.27 lakh students came to the UK last year alone. In conversation with Dainik Bhaskar, many Indian students said that they are not eating one meal.
Indian students who came to the UK with many student loans from middle-class families said that two meals have become difficult, so they eat one time 'big meal'.
After September 2022, 33 percent of students belonging to middle-class families are eating a one-time meal. 63 percent of students are cutting down on purchases of food and other essential items. Sutton Trust's survey revealed that many Indian students are doing part-time jobs leaving college-university classes.
Three students studying at Manchester University told that they also get a maintenance loan from the university but this too is proving to be insufficient. 43% of students have also reduced their electricity and gas bills. 47 percent of the students have also stopped moving around.
Senior Labor Party leader Matt Western said in a conversation with Dainik Bhaskar that the Sunak government will have to make efforts to provide relief to migrant students from inflation. Sir Peter Lample, chairman of the Sutton Trust, said it was shocking for migrant students to find it difficult to even eat two meals a day.
Now the Sunak government is considering increasing the working hours for migrant students to 30 hours per week. Even on this, the strict rules of the UK government are adding to the problems of the students. After completion of studies in the UK, if students do not get a job within six months, then they are sent back to their country.
More than half the students are getting money from their homes in India. It was revealed from the survey that these middle-class students had thought of doing part-time jobs here to meet their daily expenses, but even a part-time job is not able to meet the expenses.
