Students take on jobs as Salesmen

HIGHER fees are forcing more teenagers to take part-time jobs to pay their way through university, says home shopping company Kleeneze.

In the past year the firm says four times as many 18 to 20-year-olds have applied to become door-to-door distributors for its products.
Managing director Jamie Stewart said: “Uncertain economic times and an increase in tuition fees has left many students unable to afford the cost of university.

“They are no longer able to rely solely on the Bank of Mum and Dad and student loans to fund their studies.

“To see such a dramatic increase in the number of distributors of university age shows just how much of an impact the increase in tuition fees is having.”

Last month the Universities and Colleges Admission Service (UCAS) confirmed applications to universities had plunged by seven per cent. This is the first year English universities can charge up to £9,000 in tuition fees. Last year it was capped at £3,375.
