Cosmo On Campus is an extension of the Cosmopolitan brand with content aimed at the student population. The 56-page magazine, printed on improved news print paper, launched in October with a print run of 250,000 copies. It is distributed at 65 universities across the UK by hand-picked Cosmopolitan "Brand Ambassadors". Little Mix appeared in the March 2014 issue of Cosmo On Campus.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: "The idea of uni is really fun - all my friends have been and loved it.
"I don't know if I'd have coped, but I'd love the freshers' week thing: meeting new people and feeling independent... I do feel like I've missed out a little bit."
Jade Thirlwall added: "I'd only just finished my A-levels when I joined Little Mix. I'd enrolled on an arts degree in South Shields, but never got a chance to start it."
Jesy Nelson admitted: "I was rubbish at school. I was never destined to have anything to do with education - it just wasn't on my radar. If I wasn't in Little Mix, I'd probably still be a barmaid, trying to work out what to do with my life.
"My best friend started uni before I did X Factor, but I wasn't too jealous, although I do feel envious of her lie-ins, because we don't get any sleep, ever."
