VIP students 'arrive by helicopter'

Post by Irn Bru on Fri Sep 05, 2014 10:10 pm

Students wanting to make a memorable impression on their first day at university are being offered a VIP arrival service, such as travelling by helicopter, private jet or Rolls Royce.

It promises an entrance "enviable of movie stars and premiership football players".

Whether it will make students popular or socially shunned remains uncertain, but the packages can cost £25,000.

The National Union of Students said it was "incredibly out of touch".

The days of students piling everything into their parents' car and heading off to their new university had changed, said the spokeswoman for the "Very Important Fresher" service.

Read a comment on this somewhere else where some said...

There must be more economical ways to show you are a real tosser than by doing that.

Well I suppose it allows them to feel a little fresher on arrival Laughing

And that ladies and gentlemen is the kid you want to take out drinking. When they're smashed you put the entire lot on their tab. If they can afford a private helicopter they can afford to pay a staving student's dinner and drink tab.
