Harley Wilson says he was born in an era when society was unwilling to ‘assign him an appropriate educational identity’
I was born in the regressive nineties . . .
a relaxed looking Mr Wilson told The Lentil
. . . and despite both my parents being wealthy and successful graduates, back then, degrees simply weren’t available postnatally . . .
Yet despite only having two D grades at A Level , Mr Wilson says that he now identifies as “a popular graduate with a First Class Honours degree in Economics.
From birth, I have felt like I am a graduate. I dress like a graduate. I’m very sexually attracted to female graduates. I’ve never been near the Student Union or Mantra. In just about every sense, I am a graduate
And now he hopes to establish a support network in the Golden Triangle for others who are battling against social norms and university red-tape to be identified as graduates.
Doctor Keith Miller for the UEA School of Economics :
The first few weeks of term can be challenging for new students . . .
. . . but I would suggest that Mr Wilson has another 10 minutes to get to his first MACRO-EC tutorial before I “identify“ him as a “MegaBus passenger with a one-way ticket to Keele . . . “
