The website of the new university watchdog, intended to enforce better value for money for students, seemed to have been overtaken by hipster slang.

Visitors to the Office for Students website, go looking for advice about university finance, received references to “lumbersexual cloud bread”, “tofu tote bag” and “snackwave artisan”.

The watchdog tweeted an apology: “Ooops, we came over all poetic for a moment there.”

The pages have since been taken down.

The Office for Students has been launched by the government as a tougher and more consumer-aware regulator for higher education.
