University students will be asked how much they earn and spend as part of a new government survey. The Student Income and Expenditure Survey will target some 3,000 students, both full and part-time, in the spring and summer terms. The aim is to find out how much they are earning from jobs during both term time and holidays. It will also find out what they spend their money on. The survey will update a 1995-96 survey. Results will be published towards the end of this year or early in 2000.
