ELECTION schools project: Westminster Harris
At the end of February, pupils from Westminster Harris Sixth Form came to meet the ELECTION team and visit the University. Mrinmoyee, Joshua and Rashidat are all 17 and interested in studying politics and history and humanities - although haven't made up their minds about exact courses yet! David Runciman talked to them about Corbyn, the US election and the EU referendum before they had a tour of POLIS and visits to a couple of colleges, too. You can hear their conversations below.
Westminster Harris 1: Mrinmoyee Roy, Joshua Daniels, and Rashidat Animashaun, came to POLIS to meet David Runciman. He asked the pupils - all from Westminster Harris sixth form - what particularly interested or puzzled them about politics generally.
