Most students in UK use AI for studies, digital divide emerges – Survey - Karen MacGregor, World University News

Generative AI has become normalised in British universities, with most students using an AI tool to support studying and only 5% likely using AI to cheat, a first national survey of students and AI since the advent of ChatGPT has revealed. But urgent action is needed to stop a new digital divide emerging, and students want clear AI policies and support. Among students surveyed, 53% have used generative AI to help with their studies.
