This report presents findings from a study of people who studied for a higher education qualification in 2006 while living at home.

It uses data from Futuretrack, which is a study of all people who applied in 2005 to 2006 to enter university in the UK during the autumn of 2006. Futuretrack collected data from students before, during and after their time at university.
