London, Feb 25 (ANI): Over one in ten students studying at the prestigious Cambridge University have admitted to selling drugs to pay their tuition fees, a poll has revealed.
The poll, conducted by campus newspaper Varsity, revealed that over 60 percent of undergraduates admitted to taking drugs.
Cocaine was the most popular 'class A' drug, with students claiming it is more rife at Cambridge than other universities, The Daily Mirror reports.
The survey revealed that an alarming 14 percent had been hospitalised or required medical attention as a result of drug abuse.
Around 20 percent students said they turned to drugs to manage the work load at the university, where fees are around 9,000 pounds a year.
"It's hard to juggle a job and studying, so this is a quick and easy way for them to make cash to pay for the fees," the report quoted a One King's College student, as saying.
According to the report, the Varsity article noted that 'it is unsurprising in such a high stress environment that so many students use drugs as a way to relax and completely disconnect.' (ANI)
