Since lockdown there's been a whole swathe of new challenges facing young people.

We've heard quite of lot of conversation around concerns about future prospects for young people, and with news that young people are likely to be the worst hit by job loses due to Coronavirus, we wanted to ask whether this might be affecting your decisions about going to uni?

Are you worried about a potential lack of graduate prospects after uni?

Are you reliant on having a part-time job while you're studying?

Alternatively, is it making you more certain about going to uni, so you have a degree qualification when entering the job market?

As part of TSR Answers, we're currently working on getting a bunch of experts in different fields on TSR to support you with questions about things like this - so we'd love to hear how you're feeling.

Yeah I know it's hard, isn't it? Are you at uni looking toward grad jobs? Or are you already currently working?

Ah okay yeah, makes sense. Do you work part time while you study at all?
