For my research and to gather some statistics and primary sources I created this survey on my topic of student life. Some of the results were what I expected while some others proved contradictory.
With this answer I think it shows that maybe students could need additional support and advice. As with such a monumental step children may want to ask their parents for help, but if over half of parents haven't experienced then the guidance they give could be quite limited, this is somewhere my product could step in.
The majority of participants have a student loan, which shows it is a very popular option for funding. Although from personal experience it's a stressful process and an opportunity to give guidance.
Pretty much an equal response for this question.
From all the budgets on option only the lower choices were picked, showing that students may need help budgeting what they spend.
