The Times Higher Education covers YouthSight research on student binge drinking

The pressure to get drunk at university is one of students' major worries, a survey has found.

One fifth of students polled by the market research firm YouthSight listed the pressure to drink as one of their top five anxieties about campus life.

Twenty-two per cent also counted "too much partying/drinking" as a major concern.

That fear was even more acute at Russell Group universities, where 30 per cent of students worried about the impact of excessive socialising on their studies.

Money was the biggest concern for most students, with 63 per cent listing it as a top-five worry. Other anxieties cited include difficulties settling in (50 per cent), trouble making friends (48 per cent) and getting on with flatmates (44 per cent).

The survey, which was commissioned by the student accommodation provider University Partnerships Programme, polled 1,507 students. About half those polled were expecting to start university this autumn; the rest were current undergraduates.
