14 universities that made it in the world of pop music

14 universities that made it in the world of pop music

Academia and popular music might not seem the most obvious bedfellows, but as this list proves, some of the most prestigious higher education systems in the world have influenced some very well known (and some not so well known) singers and songwriters.

We’ve been searching through lyrics, trying to find songs that mention specific universities by name. Can you think of any that do not feature on our list? Please feel free to add them in the comments section below, or tweet Times Higher Education using the hashtag #HElyrics.

You can also follow Times Higher Education on YouTube and view all of the songs listed here on our #HElyrics playlist.
