Students are lonely and stressed

Statistics from the Danish Association of Lawyers and Economists (DJØF) show that a large number of students are lonely and stressed during their time of study.

The association asked over 600 students from various social science and business economic courses to indicate what factors promote a good study environment. The results showed that 72% of students are stressed or experience a lot of pressure in connection with their studies. The pressure to deliver top performances, especially in the lead-up to exams, particularly promotes stress. The survey also found that 46% of students experience some degree of loneliness while studying.
