This is where all the cast of Love Island 2022 went to university

Oh to be this smart and good looking x


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – right now it is statistically more difficult to get on to Love Island than it is to go to a top university in the UK. But for a very, very few select people they have defied all odds, done the impossible, beaten science, outsmarted us all and shown us all up – because yep, they’ve only gone and done both. On Love Island 2022, there are a fair few Islanders who also went to university.

Some of the cast members are still studying, whilst others graduated in a range of subjects such as science and dance. Here are all the Islanders in the cast of Love Island 2022 who went to university, and where and what they studied.

Ekin-Su has joined Love Island 2022 as a bombshell, and before the villa went to uni at The University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN). It’s believed she studied performing arts, and a video of one of her uni projects has resurfaced. As part of her degree, Ekin-Su created a reality TV show called “Lancashore” following the lives of students. From when the posts were uploaded, which were apparently in her first year, it looks as though she started at uni in 2012.

Yep, a little bit iconic.
