Student Living Index 2015 Hobbies and Interests

The RBS Student Living Index, compiled in partnership with an independent research company, takes a sample of 2486 students to give you an idea of how students are spending their money, how much they are spending and how many hours they are spending on different activities.

To give our students a hand when they get there, our Student Account comes with a free National Express Young Persons Coachcard, which gives a third off UK and international coach travel. Or why not take a look at the other student products that we offer?

The Hobbies and Interests section is compiled by weekly spend on a variety of different activities, such as gaming and fashion.
