FOUR in ten female students would pose topless to finance their studies, a survey revealed.
A third also said they would consider working in a "gentleman's club" to help them get through their student years.
The poll, of more than 1,000 female university students, found that two per cent have worked in a strip club while at university, with almost half saying they took the job because it was "easy money".
Three in ten said they would consider taking their clothes off for money, with almost one in five saying they know of somebody in their year that has worked as an exotic dancer. Four in ten said they would work as a glamour model, with a further 47 per cent saying they would consider it.
Sue Harrison, co-founder of student recruitment agency Studentgems.com, said: "When students are trying to show their independence, they may well consider doing things that they don't really want to, so they can afford their independent lifestyle.
"It would be so much better for the students to work in a job they feel happy in as well as a job that would benefit their career."
The survey questioned 1,022 female university students between March 15-22.
