Denmark's 'student salary', the ultimate remedy to undergraduate poverty?
Issued on: Modified:
In recent weeks, students in France have been protesting against rising living costs, while over in the UK, many support the Labour Party's campaign promise to scrap university tuition fees and bring back student grants. A similar system is currently in place in Denmark. Students there get free tuition, plus €750 a month. Those from other EU countries are eligible too, provided they also work for around eleven hours a week. Our reporter Alix Le Bourdon met a British student who moved to Denmark two years ago to benefit from this generous but expensive system.
