A poll by TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk has given an insight into how the UK's student population may vote in Thursday's general election.

The survey, which polled 1,507 users of TheCompleteUniversityGuide.co.uk, found the traditional three main parties to be the most popular among the UK's students. The Labour Party was the clear favourite by far, gaining 57% of the vote. The Conservative Party placed second (22.9%), with Liberal Democrats finishing in third place (7.6%).

The UK Independence Party (UKIP) received the fourth largest share of the vote (4.1%), while the Green Party ranked fifth with 3.3%. 

With a 2.1% share of the votes, the Scottish National Party polled the highest of the regional parties, while the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) finished with 0.6% and Plaid Cymru received 0.4%. Just 2% of respondents said that they intend to vote for 'other' candidates.
