The current generation of Y, or millenial, is completely not adapted to life and suffer from anxiety disorders, reports with the BBC.
This is stated in a study conducted by the Institute for Higher Education Policy (Hepi) together with Unite students.

As studies have shown, in which more than 2000 young people took part, today's young people are not ready for real life, and this is partly due to various anxiety disorders and panic attacks.

Most of the respondents were born in 1998-2002 years and are currently preparing to enter the university. The surveys they participated in included questions about whether future students were able to pay bills, rent housing, and plan expenses.

The survey found that more than half of prospective students do not know how to pay bills, and many believe that parties cost more than renting an apartment.
The researchers pointed out that many potential students are worried and confused by the prospect of leaving the house to start getting a higher education.

61% of respondents are worried about whether they will arrive, 58% have problems with sleep, and 27% - panic attacks.
Researchers said that many potential students do not know enough about the intricacies and features of university life.
So, 60% of respondents believe that they will spend more time at lectures than they spent on school. Although in practice, most university subjects take much less time than at school. Moreover, students in such specialties as history often have less than ten hours of lectures per week.
More than half of the respondents admitted that they did not know how to handle money and, until now, they did not have to pay bills.
Many also did not know that housing payments are the largest cost item for students after paying for tuition.

Only half of the prospective students correctly identified their highest expenses.
Other participants suggested that after the tuition fee, they would spend the most on parties and student societies, products or study materials.

Researchers have warned that the prospect of leaving their home causes the generation of two thousandths to worry, even panic.

Nick Hillman, director of the Institute for Higher Education Policy (HEPI), who conducted this study, told the BBC that students need to be more actively helped to adapt to the university.

“We have a lot of research on what students think, but very little on what those who have yet to become, expect,” said Mr. Hillman.

“We decided to fill this gap because people who expect something different from what they actually face are less satisfied with their situation, study less and feel that they are not getting enough for their money,” he added.

The study also showed that many potential students with mental health problems do not plan to inform their university about their condition.

Only one-third of prospective students intend to talk about such a problem. This raises concerns that institutions will not be able to properly prepare for their treatment if it is required.
