Nominated by our excellent contributor, Edmund Wise, Neville Morley is apparently attractive to both sexes as he performs Alan Partridge impressions in class. He’s ‘charismatic, funny, [a] classics cult of personality’ and has ‘sarcastic charm’.

One female source said of Saha: ‘I fancy Saha [be]cause he is so intelligent, very cool, young and quite good looking’.

4) Dr Luis Correia – Economics

Number-crunching economics lecturer, Dr Luis Correia, is anticipated to become Portugal’s future Prime Minister, replacing Pedro Passos Coelho, later this year. One source suggested he is so hard working that many female students actually want to leave their number for ‘extra help’, whatever form that would take.

5) Mr James McFarthing – Modern Languages

Richard is known to command the attention of the same 20 girls who surround him to ‘ask questions’ before each lecture. It would be embarrassing but somehow it’s not.

8) Dr Will Atkinson – Sociology

When asked about why he was so popular, our source said ‘I dunno, he’s just insanely intelligent, quick-witted and funny and did really well in the lecturer’s moot’.
