Last week, HEPI and YouthSight polled over 1,000 full-time undergraduate students entitled to vote in the 2017 General Election.

Students in the UK turned out in large numbers to vote in the EU referendum but have to live with a result that they feel very negatively about.

Over half of British university students do not know when the EU referendum is taking place, according to a new poll published today.
Since 2004, YouthSight has conducted over 100 polls of the Student Vote, providing a data series that gives a powerful and unique picture of voting intentions and party preference among this important constituency.
