London: 31st March 2015 – Youth research agency Red Brick Research today published the findings of its nationwide survey of 4,700 students across the UK, ahead of Thursday’s leaders’ debate.

Headline findings:
- Labour hold the largest share of student support at 37% with the Greens close behind at 26% and Conservatives trailing in third with 24% of the vote.
- Liberal Democrat support at just 5% - level with UKIP
- 31% of students ‘certain to vote’
- Conservative support stronger amongst male students (27%) than female (22%)
