These are the fittest unis in the UK


Share This Article:

A new dating app exclusively for privately educated people, Toffee Dating, has conducted a survey about university romances.

Toffee Dating surveyed 4,000 students between 18 and 25 to find the most ‘swiped right universities’ in the whole of the UK creating a strong indicator of where the most attractive students study.

University is a huge milestone in a young person’s life.

For many students, it’s their first time living away from home, legally being allowed to drink. So, it is therefore understandable that, according to Toffee Dating’s survey, a majority of all students make friends for life during the studies as they grow as individuals and meet people of similar interest.

The survey went on to claim that 81% of all university students use dating apps, with students spending 9 hours a week searching for term time flings or permanent loves. 

It is estimated that only 28% of students will fall in love whilst studying and just 17% end up marrying their university sweetheart.

Toffee Dating has accumulated a list of the most attractive universities after investigating how many of their students are ‘swiped right.'

With Toffee Dating being purely for privately educated individuals, it may come as a surprise that neither Cambridge or Oxford make it onto the list. So, where do the most attractive students go to Uni?
