London- Asharq Al-Awsat
The university year in the UK kicks off this month. The country's universities include students from various nationalities and cultures. But the University of St. Andrews, the oldest in Scotland, has an extraordinary student this year.

This student, who preoccupied the British press on Tuesday, is the daughter of an Indian billionaire. Her father bought her a luxurious house to live in Scotland instead of staying in a university dorm.

The student, whose identity is still unknown, also plans to hire a staff of 12 to take care of her during her years at the university. A job advertisement was published on the Silver Swan Employment website, in which the family expressed their desire to hire highly qualified and experienced people.

A housemaid and a butler, along with a driver, chef and crew to take care of her garments and shopping, are to be employed. The father of the student offered attractive salaries of up to $39,000 a year for each employee, the Business Insider reported Tuesday.
