Where are the rest of the universities? Rather silly to include so few ... also many students don't register in their uni city/town.

I doubt if it was a serious survey, probably relied on who answered something online, maybe these were the only places with enough responses??


actually ETA: http://www.highfliers.co.uk/download/20 ... port15.pdf they looked at 30 unis..

Why just final year students? My 18 year old first year is voting for the first time, and yes, she is voting the way this survey indicates.

Its likely the survey was done at the same time as the High flyers annual survey of final year graduates.
