[unclear: Living] Costs for Students
The Accommodation Service has collected annually information from [unclear: university] students on their living costs. This information has been used to [unclear: advise] intending students of the cost of full time study at the University. [unclear: The] material has also been used by NZUSA in its submissions to the Govern[unclear: ment] for adequate bursary assistance for students.
This year, all full-time university students living in halls have been asked [unclear: to] complete a survey form on Income and Expenditure of Hall Residents [unclear: for] the 1976 Academic Year. The date for completion of the survey is 8th [unclear: October] Students have been asked to estimate expenses after this date (until [unclear: after] their final examination) so that this sum can be included in the totals.
All information obtained from this survey will be processed in a manner [unclear: which] will protect the confidentiality of individual students' finances and only [unclear: coverage] figures or a range of figures will be released.
The Minister of Education, Mr. Gander (Evening Post, 27th September) [unclear: as] called on all interested parties to make submissions on a new reformed [unclear: bursary] that will take into account annual increases in costs.
The survey of income and expenditure of residents in halls 1976 will [unclear: give] up-to-date information on living costs for students and will be invaluable [unclear: in] documenting submissions to the Minister of Education. A high response [unclear: rate] will increase the value of the survey findings and will indicate that the [unclear: cost] of living is a vital issue for students. Help next year's students by comple[unclear: ting] and returning your survey form, either to the Warden of your hall or to [unclear: the] Accommodation Service, 6 Kelburn Parade.
