Lourdes follows path of Madonna

Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon will be following in the footsteps of her mum by attending the same university as the pop star.

Now it has been revealed that Lourdes has enrolled to study at the University of Michigan - where Madonna was in the late 1970s, the New York Daily News reported.

The 17-year-old officially appears in the university's student directory under the name Lourdes Ciccone Leon, as an undergraduate in music, theatre and dance, according to the newspaper.

In November, Madonna was spotted touring the campus with her daughter

And this week she hinted that Lourdes would be at the university, posting an Instagram snap of the front the institution's merchandise shop, called the M Den, with the caption: "I think I'll stop in here!"

Madonna attended the school on a dance scholarship in the 1970s, but left early for New York City to pursue her pop dreams.

She has previously said: "I want my daughter to go to school there. I keep telling her, (it) is an awesome place."
