The transcription /'stuːdənt/ is missing de sound /j/

    The presence of the /j/ sound depends of the region. "Student" can be pronounced with or without the /j/ sound after the "st".

    But the dictionary page reads:
    UK:*/ˈstuːdənt/

    As far as I know, this pronunciation is far from being the norm in the UK.

    Webster's New World dictionary gives both transcriptions; first the one without the /j/ and then the one with the /j/.

    Perhaps it would be a good idea to list both in the WR dictionary too? (at least, if that is possible).

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't notice the "UK" flag and when I press the "more" link, it gives both transcriptions.

    EDIT2: And I think you are right: I guess in the UK, it would be with the /j/.
