The University of Westminster has the highest amount of cash strapped students signing up to “sugar daddy” websites to help cope with the cost of tuition fees, according to new research.
The dating sites see young students paired off with rich, older men who could pay their tuition fees in return for “companionship”.
The girls, known as "Sugar Babies", are promised the opportunity to earn up to £3,000-a-month to accompany men to restaurants and functions, as well as on weekends away and nights in hotels.
Research by Brandon Wade, founder of Seeking Arrangement, shows 1.4 million profiles on his website belong to students.
The University of Westminster was found to be the top college for new British sign-ups last year.
According to their figures, the average sugar baby spends their allowance on rent, books and tuition fees.
