Meet all the famous YouTubers at your uni right now
They’re studying and making serious £££, wbu?
You know what's mind-blowing? There are minor celebrities at your uni right now and you've probably met them without realising. The person who danced embarrassingly to Mr Brightside last Wednesday night at the SU? Yep, they're a royal. That guy who asked you for a filter in the smoking area? A child actor trying to have a normal uni experience. And that girl you keep seeing in the library cafe? A YouTuber with half a million subscribers, making more money than you probably ever will.
Ruby Granger – Exeter University
Ruby Granger is a YouTuber who specialises in "StudyTubing", a fairly recent trend which involves people essentially vlogging while they work.
Most "StudyTubers" upload unedited two-hour sessions, seemingly with the aim of having the viewer study alongside them in real-time. Ruby's videos instead involve her recording herself over entire days on time-lapse for up to 15 hours at a time.
Grace Beverley – Oxford University
