Dear friends and colleagues!
We are happy to invite you to the first ever EUROSTUDENT webinar on April 19th at 10 am (CEST).
In this webinar we are looking into the situation of higher education students who engage in paid work alongside their studies. What does EUROSTUDENT VI data from 28 countries tell us about working students? Why do they work? Are they satisfied with their time budget? What are the main challenges and benefits of working alongside studies?
Colleagues from MOSTA (EUROSTUDENT consortium members) will present some of the main results of EUROSTUDENT VI and provide answers to these and other important questions. You can also send us your own questions during the presentation or ask them right after during the Q&A session. The webinar will be 1 hour approximately.
So come join our webinar on Thursday, April 19th at 10 am (Central European Summer Time) on our website www.eurostudent.eu/webinar!
Why is it important to monitor working students in higher education? According to EUROSTUDENT data, on average, a little over half of all students work during the lecture period. As working students form a heterogeneous group, understanding the composition of a working student body at the national and cross-national level may help to develop more measures targeted at widening participation, increased inclusivity, and life-long learning in higher education systems.
