Students looking for love

Students looking for love

Students are hoping to leave university with more than just a degree.

Most believe they will meet the love of their life on campus, just like Prince William and Kate Middleton, a new study reveals.

Romance is a hot topic for students - more than a third (35 per cent) confess to meeting their true love at university, while another 45 per cent are waiting to meet Mr or Ms Right during their time studying.

Student insurance specialists Endsleigh also found the Midlands as the best place for a university romance.

Around two-thirds (66 per cent) of students at Coventry, Birmingham, Loughborough and Nottingham Trent universities say they have, or will find the love of their lives while studying.

Some romances do end in a broken heart rather than a march up the aisle at Westminster Abbey.

About four in 10 students have suffered or suspect to suffer a broken heart from unreciprocated love.

“In the spirit of the royal wedding we asked students and graduates whether, like Prince William and Kate, they found their other half at university,” said Vicki O'Connell, Communications Manager at Endsleigh.

“Our survey shows that plenty of students are finding romance as well as furthering their careers.

"Sadly not all these couples will live happily ever after like the prince and his princess. The results show that many students may have to kiss a number of frogs before they find ‘the One'."
