WHY ADVERTISE? It’s a huge market: Over 50,000 students enrolled in Exeter, Plymouth, Truro & Falmouth Universities and colleges alone in 2010/2011 They have money to spend: Students have an average annual expenditure of £6,339 and over 50% of students have a credit card - many students have adopted a ‘spend now, pay later’ attitude: six in ten accept that debt is just part of university life They want to know how to spend it: Some are away from home for the very first time, in a new city – they need your help! They spend thousands of pounds on going out, alcohol, entertainment, clothes, mobile phones, computers/laptops and CD’s/music/DVD’s. The 247 September Student Edition suggests the best places to eat, drink, shop, play and party. Reach the Freshers: Almost all students said they spent more in their first year because they socialise more. • • • • • •

94% go to the cinema at least once a month Over 50% go clubbing at least once a week or more 72% go travelling at least once a year 97% have internet access 91% own a computer 83% are classed as ABC1

“As the cost of a university education continues to rise, student motivation to study and their approach to how they spend their day is likely to change in order to make going to university good value for money. When they are spending, make sure they are doing it with your business…” Sources: Mintel Report of Student Lifestyle 2008 / Mediaweek
