6 Super-cool celebrity university graduates

Prince William started a brand new university program on Tuesday, but he is not the only famous face to ever attend a prestigious university.

Prince William

Aw, ’twas the first day of school for Prince William today!

Indeed, the duke began his studies in a 10-week program in agricultural management at University of Cambridge on Tuesday. So anyone in the area has ample opportunity to stalk the royal — high fives!

Of course, there is already plenty of controversy circulating around Prince William’s attendance to the university, mostly regarding the small matter of him not being properly eligible to attend the institution yet being miraculously accepted. Per The Tab, the duke did not achieve high enough grades at Eton College to meet the university’s standards. Naturally, many students are up in arms over this.

Well, you have to have perks for being a royal, being constantly harassed and having no privacy whatsoever, right? This program will be an extension of the prince’s education; he already holds a Scottish Master of Arts degree from University of St. Andrews.

Whilst on the topic of education, check out some other famous faces who have graduated from universities. Special emphasis on the word “graduated,” since many celebrities started but never completed their studies. But these guys went all the way:
