How fashionable is your uni?

I got beauty I got class I got style and I got ass

Style-conscious fashionistas at Birmingham uni are spending more money on clothes than any other undergrads in the UK.

A recent Natwest survey puts the weekly spend on new threads at an eye-watering £15.29 in Birmingham, equivalent to nearly £800 a year.

The catwalks of Birmingham’s campus contrast starkly with the grubby, charity shop-wearing streets of Exeter and Bristol, where the average student spends just over £300 a year on making themselves presentable.

Scotland’s style icons are Glasgow, where the average annual spend is an impressive £679.64, while rival city Edinburgh are wallowing in their own filth and only forking out around £367 on clean clothes.

Elsewhere, Cambridge pip Oxford in the sartorial stakes, with an extra £120 a year spent on pocket squares/cravats/other Oxbridge things.

According to Natwest, the average UK student spends just over £500 on new clothes a year, over a hundred pounds less than they spend on alcohol.
