The €3,000 caravan has reduced his living costs from €815 to €136 a month.

Lucas said: “When I finished last year I could not afford to pay my final bills.

“I got into a lot of debt and I was still paying even though I had gone home for the summer.

“The caravan just seemed like the best option.

“My friends thought it was a crazy idea at first, but I have solar panels that give me electricity, a shower and water.”

    Is a fact that the expectatives of future incomes of a student can´t be compared with the expectatives of a student of passed times.

    In USA many graduates are working frying burgers, at 5 $ /hour, while they must to pay his student loans.

    In Spain the situation is notabily worst, the only advantage is that the students haven’t subscribed loans.
