Mothers with small girls throughout Britain have been besieging colleges such as Oxford with inquiries about degrees and doctorates in Princessology.
The new course has been offered to cater for tens of thousands of keen children obsessed with dressing up as Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. The entrance age for the course has been lowered to stop people getting bored with the idea. Magic wands, spinning wheels and glass slippers will all be used in the course and lecturers will be known as fairy godmothers.
Bad fairies, tooth fairies poisoned apples and wicked witches will not be allowed on the campus.
A survey of children's favorite ideas for B.A. courses came up with 98% in favour of Princess courses and 2% in favour of sweet making.
