Top 20 cities with students who borrow the most money off their parents revealed

We’d be lying if we said we have never turned to our parents for a helping hand from time to time, but which Unis make a habit of asking parents to bail them out. Take a look at our list of 20 cities where students borrow the most money off their parents.

20. Leicester

With a cheapish student rent, and relatively high student income, students in this area only need to borrow an average of £154.10 per month.

19. Leeds

With 2 of the universities in the list of the unis which get the most sex, perhaps Leeds students are too preoccupied to work, and that’s why they borrow £160.70 on average each month from the bank of mum and dad.

18. Birmingham

Students in this area borrow an average of £163.90 per month.  This is clearly to help them pay for all their nights out as the hardest partying university. Either that or they’re too busy in bed to get out to work!

17. York

Students in this area borrow an average of £180.60 per month. This helps students cover their medium rent of £274.20, and leaves space for plenty of £3.50 pints.

16. Southampton

Students in this area borrow an average of £185.70 per month. This is unsurprising considering their student rent is only £393.40, leaving them plenty of money to buy their £3.60 pints! Although maybe the top-up is to pay for their dates, seeing as they’re in the top 100 universities having the most sex!

15. Sheffield

With 2 universities and lots to do, Sheffield ranked well on our partying universities list. Maybe that’s why students in this area borrow an average of £196.40 per month.

14. Glasgow

Glaswegian students are well known for their partying lifestyle, so no wonder they’ve made the top 3 hardest partiers, which has clearly led to them relying a little too much on their parents, borrowing an average of £196.90.

13. Canterbury

Students in this area borrow an average of £200.10 per month, which helps the Canterbury students pay for their £417.20 rents! 

12. Cardiff

Now, Cardiff is one of the highest earning student cities, and yet they’ve still wound up borrowing from their parents. Maybe they’ve spent it all on the partying that places them 9th on the hardest partying universities list, leaving them skint enough to borrow £202.20 per month.

11. Exeter

Students in this area borrow an average of £218.60 per month. Which doesn’t seem like much, but that adds up over the 3 years! We aren’t surprised though, they’re number 15 on our hardest partying universities. Gotta fund the sesh somehow!

10. Coventry

With an average term-time income of over £900, Coventry students are doing pretty well for themselves – especially if they borrow £219.30 from their parents each month.

9. Liverpool

With three universities, all of which are getting busy quite often, students in Liverpool seemingly just can’t find work or can’t find the time for it, borrowing £220.30 on average from their parents each month.

8. Nottingham

Students in this area borrow an average of £220.90 per month. This makes sense, especially when Nottingham students have said that they’re not particularly sensible with their funds! Borrowing from the bank of mum and dad means that they can still afford their wild nights out! 

7. Manchester

Students in this area borrow an average of £221.10 per month, which helps them pay for their rank on our 25 hardest partying list. Plus, it would appear they’re too busy exploring their… new interests, to go and work that many hours.

6. Bristol

Students in this area borrow an average of £235.70 per month, and we know that it’s going straight to the pub for those £4.10 pints… otherwise, they wouldn’t be number 10 in our partiers list! 

5. London

The capital is very pricey, so it’s no surprise that London students have to ask for a top up – after all, their rent is the most expensive in the country! To help them through, they borrow an average of £248.80 per month.

4. Cambridge

Students in this area borrow an average of £270.50 per month. But for a lot of Cambridge students, the bank of mum and dad is a very reliable source of income to top up the term-time income of £1447.20. It isn’t that much to borrow, in comparison to other universities, especially when they’re still in the top 25 partying unis! 

3. Durham

Students in this area borrow an average of £300.70 per month. With Durham being in the north, this may come as a surprise, but it looks like students in Durham spend a lot of time with their heads in books and with bottles in their mouths. Despite being known for being the dull university, Durham scored 16th on our hardest partiers list! But all-out of parents pockets, by the looks of it.

2. Oxford

Students in this area borrow an average of £307.70 per month, despite being one of the cities with the highest student incomes! Maybe all the fancy studying just doesn’t leave a lot of time for part-time work, especially when they’re partying the night away! 

1. Edinburgh

Students in this area borrow an average of £314.70 per month. This is kind of expected considering how beautiful the city is, you’ve got to be able to make the most of Edinburgh, even when that means paying £3.90 for a pint! Plus, their student rents are quite high, over £500 a month.
