Student Safari

By Emma
Student Safari

When roaming through the social jungles of freshers’ week, you’ll discover a diverse and colourful range of different student stereotypes.

Use our handy Student Safari Spotting Sheet to cross off each character as you see them.

One of the lads

Footy, beer, banter and a big helping of Sky Sports

Most likely to say: “Pro Evo” (and not a lot else)






Party girl

Out every night at Gatecrasher, tanned to within an inch of her life and probably has hair extensions

Most likely to say: “Don’t you dare tag that on Facebook”







Loud and proud, can’t help but make an impression good or bad on everyone due to her ear-popping volume and shameless topics of conversation

Most likely to say: “And then I was sick in his bin!”







He’s in a band don’t you know

Most likely to say: “Dave Grohl speaks to my soul”







Expensive trackies, flipflops, and flyaway rah-hair: the unique stylings of the upper classes 

Most likely to say: “gwafgwaf rich, money, cricket, polo”
