Queen’s Uni doesn’t like common people, study indicates…

IS Queen’s University elitist and are its students spoilt? A study reported in the Guardian suggests that more than half (55%) of the students at Queen’s come from the richest homes – while “just over a third (36%) of John Lewis’s customers and 34% of House of Fraser’s come from the same group”. And at the other end of the scale, just 33% of Queen’s students are from the poorest homes. The study suggests that Queen’s is dominated by children of white, middle-class parents who own two cars and a home with four bedrooms. So the kids might live in Student Land, but on average they’re still posher than John Lewis.
