The pop group consisting of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson and Jade Thirlwall open up about education and their most student-like habits in a new interview.
Gracing the cover of the Spring issue of Cosmopolitan's spin-off student magazine, Cosmo on Campus, Leigh-Anne admits she feels like she's "missed out a little bit".
"The idea of uni is really fun – all my friends have been and loved it," she says. "I don't know if I'd have coped, but I'd love the freshers' week thing: meeting new people and feeling independent... I do feel like I've missed out a little bit."
Bandmate Jade Thirlwall always intended on studying in higher education. "Yes [I considered uni]," says Jade. "I'd only just finished my A-levels when I joined Little Mix. I'd enrolled on an arts degree in South Shields, but never got a chance to start it."
But for Jesy, university was never an option. The brunette reveals the only thing she would miss is having lie-ins because she doesn't "get any sleep, ever!"
"I was rubbish at school," explains Jesy. "I was never destined to have anything to do with education – it just wasn't on my radar.
"If I wasn't in Little Mix, I'd probably still be a barmaid, trying to work out what to do with my life."
Little Mix are currently on the road touring in the US, where they've achieved record-breaking success. Most recently Little Mix topped the US iTunes chart with their second album Salute.
Also in June last year, Little Mix made chart history for having the best-selling debut album by a British girl group in the States, a record previously held by 90s pop group the Spice Girls.
But if they weren't travelling the globe and were living the lives of students, Perrie, who is engaged to One Direction star Zayn Malik, reveals that she'd be in her PJs a lot!
Little Mix have had a whirlwind couple of years since winning The X Factor in 2011, and now with two albums under their belt, they're preparing to release the official Sport Relief charity single, 'Word Up', which is a cover of the 1986 smash hit by Cameo.
The girls unveiled the music video earlier this month which features cameos from Spice Girl Melanie C, professional dancer and former Celebrity Big Brother star Louie Spence, and radio host Nick Grimshaw.
Little Mix's Sport Relief Single 'Word Up' is out on Sunday 16 March.
The full interview appears in the Spring issue of Cosmo on Campus, also available in digital edition on Apple Newsstand.
