Students who graduate in economics have been found to be the most promiscuous of all the pupils on campus, a new study in the UK has found.
A survey of 4,656 undergraduates found that economics students had nearly five sexual partners since starting university, compared to less than two for those studying environmental science.
Researchers found that undergraduates studying economics had 4.88 sexual partners since starting university, with the next most promiscuous students studying social work, community care and counselling (4.7 partners), the 'Daily Mail' reported.
Next in the top five courses for romance were students of marketing (4.57 partners), while those studying leisure, hospitality, tourism and retail said they had 4.56 sexual partners on average since starting university.
Students of agriculture (4.44) came fifth in the table. Other courses which made the top ten for student promiscuity included Engineering, and sports science.
At the bottom of the list came students studying environmental sciences who reported having 1.71 sexual partners on average since starting university, while those studying Theology were second from bottom with 2.13.
Another surprise from the sex survey - which involved students from 100 UK universities - was the relative 'chasteness' of those studying the more fashionable subjects.
Art students (3.18 sexual partners) and media studies (3.01), for instance, were in the bottom ten for sexual partners.
Six out of ten students said they had slept with two people or less people since starting university.
Thirty-nine per cent said they had, had only one sexual partner while five per cent had no sexual partners at all.
Just nine per cent students rated sex as the most important thing in their university life, compared to more than half (52 per cent) who said friends were most important.
