These are all the Love Islanders who have degrees

Dr Alex isn’t the only smart cookie

Love Islanders have everything – money, followers, enviable wardrobes and um, degrees? It’s easy to forget before they were snogging each other on national TV some of them were just average students working hard towards their 2:1s and a good time like the rest of us.

Over the years there have been many Islanders who touched on their time at uni. Last season it was Hugo and Chuggs meeting in the villa and realising they actually partied together back at Oxford Brookes. And some Islanders go on the show whilst still at uni, abandoning their plans for a degree in search of love and a Boohoo collection.

As well as all having perfectly chiselled abs and a set of pearly white teeth, many of the Love Island cast have similar degrees. The overwhelming majority of them have either studied something to do with sport or law.

These are all the Love Island cast members who have degrees:

Degree: Sport and Exercise Science

Camilla Thurlow from the third series of Love Island studied at Loughborough University where she got a degree in Sport and Exercise Science. I’m not going to lie I really can’t see Camilla at Loughborough.

Degree: Public Relations

Montana had just finished uni when she entered the Love Island villa in 2017. She was studying at Bournemouth University and got her degree in Public Relations, which I guess prepped her pretty well for life as an influencer.

Dr Alex

Degree: Medicine

It’s no surprise Dr Alex is on the list, you can’t really become a doctor without a degree or two.

Dr Alex studied medicine at the University of Exeter on a five year course and then moved onto working as a junior A&E doctor at University Lewisham Hospital in London.

Rosie Williams

Degree: Law

Yes, as in that Rosie who said to Adam Collard exactly what we were all thinking in 2018, has a degree. And of course it’s in Law, cause she knows her shit.

Rosie began her law degree at the University of Swansea before completing her final year at the University of South Wales.

After graduating she went onto the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) but changed her mind and switched to the Legal Practice Course (LPC) at The University of Law in Chester. So by the time she arrived on Love Island she was a fully qualified lawyer.

Season four’s Charlie Brake received a degree in Sports and Events Management from a university in Switzerland. Yes I know, I’m surprised he wasn’t at Oxford Brookes too.

Probably the smartest person to ever enter the villa was Yewande Biala in season five. She started university at just 16 years old where she started working on her undergraduate degree in Biotechnology from Athlone Institute of Technology.

Yewande then went onto do her masters degree in Pharmaceutical Quality Assurance and Regulation which she got a 2:1 in.
