There has been a huge amount of Irish students turning to 'sugar daddy dating', new figures have shown.

Controversial website has said that 10,000 Irish students also known as "sugar babies" are now on their website compared to 4,464 in 2013, meaning uptake has more than doubled in the space of just four years.

According to The Irish Mirror, the website reports that UCD tops the list with 601 members, which is followed by Trinity close behind with 585 and DIT with 581.

The website matches wealthy older men with young women and it seems that creating "mutually beneficial" relationships can give female students ways to complete their course and pay off student loans.

Alexis Germany, a spokesperson for Seeking Arrangement said, "We are not surprised by the increase in student sugar babies.

"Sugar dating is a way for students to get the money they need for school without dedicating precious study hours to low-paying part-time jobs."

It is not clear how many of the 10,000 Irish students are "active" on the website.

Some of the Irish colleges that also made the top of the list included; University College Cork (571), Dublin City University (568), University of Limerick (512), and NUI Galway (474).
