Students who need to take out a loan to pay for their studies are more often extremely tired, emotionally exhausted and concerned about having a burnout. They are also more likely to say no to social activities because of the costs, according to a survey by Motivaction commissioned by student organization ISO, NOS and BN De Stem report.
According to ISO, the survey shows that the loan system has a major impact on students. "Borrowing does not only touch students in the wallet, but also emotionally. That became a fact with this study", chairman Tom van den Brink said to NOS.
