Student suicide rates overtake non-students The suicide rate among UK students is higher than among the general population of their age group, say researchers.

The Hong Kong-based researchers say that female students were particularly likely to have a higher suicide rate.
Researcher Edward Pinkney says it shows a "real problem in higher education". BBC News
