According to a survey the University Gozitan group (GUG) has carried out recently, University and MCAST Gozitan students cannot keep up with paying rent.

Out of 1,170 Gozitans studying in Malta, only 13.8% participated in this survey.

The majority of the participants said their current stipend is falling short of rent and transport expenses, which range from €80 to €180.

Most of the participants also said the grant should be adjusted with costs of living adjustment.

The survey has been officially released by GUG after the organisation met Prime Minister Joseph Muscat last week to discuss initial indications of dissatisfied students.
