The idea of trying to make it as an Instagram influencer has crossed most of our minds at least once. Would it really be that hard to curate a nice-looking feed and post a couple of #ootd shots?
One university believes it can monetise the dream of many, offering an official class on becoming an influencer.
China's Yiwu Industrial & Commercial College is running a 'modelling and etiquette' class that equips students with the skills to make it in the public eye.
According to Mashable, the course covers all the important areas of blogger fame – perfecting your poses, developing a specific sense of style, learning how to apply makeup and improving a person's photo and video skills.
The course runs for three years and students who complete it are awarded an associate degree.
