We often see celebrities wearing the most ostentatious designer pieces—clothes, bags, shoes, you name it!—and we don't bother to bat an eye because, well, these stars can obviously afford the best things that money can buy. But when it comes to their children, a good school is no doubt the most important investment "piece" worth splurging on. Just like any other parents, they'd only want the best for their kids, after all.

Ahead, we list down some celebrity offspring who are currently studying (or have graduated from) some of the most expensive universities around the world.
