Millennials aren't ready for the 'reality of life' and suffer from panic attacks and anxiety problems, new research has revealed. A study of 2,000 young people preparing to start university found that many aren't ready for the challenges of living independently.

The research found that more than half of prospective students don't know how to pay a bill and that many believe that nights out cost more than paying rent. Researchers said that many would-be students have been left worried and confused by the prospect of leaving home to start higher education. The study found 61 per cent of millennials are anxious about the prospect of starting university, while 58 per cent are having trouble sleeping and 27 per cent are having panic attacks.

Students are worryingly unprepared

Researchers said the results suggest many would-be students are worryingly unaware of the challenges of university life. The poll found that 60 per cent of prospective students believed that they would spend more time in lectures than they did in school lessons.
But in practice, most university subjects take up much less time than school, with students on degree courses such as history often having fewer than ten hours of lectures a week. And while many participants considered themselves to be good with money, more than half admitted that they do not know how to pay a bill. Many students were also unaware that paying rent is the biggest cost for students after tuition fees.
