Government minister Nick Boles dropped into Ealing Hammersmith and West London College to discuss the upcoming EU referendum and other key topics.
Minister for Business Innovation Skills visited the Hammersmith and Fulham campus on May 16.
Lasting just over an hour, the visit was very well received by students, who questioned Mr Boles on the long-term benefits of remaining in the EU, and if it would give them the edge in the jobs market, improve opportunities, help build small businesses and maintain human rights.
Also discussed at the campus in Gliddon Road, Barons Court, were apprenticeships and the new apprenticeship levy, with the minister explaining how it would lead to more opportunities.
He is the latest in a long line of politicians to visit the college, with Boris Johnson playing netball during a visit when he was London mayor.
The minister said: "It was great to visit Hammersmith and Fulham College to talk about why we will be stronger, safer and better off if we remain in the EU. The students asked some great questions and showed they understand that their future is at stake in the referendum on 23 June.
"That’s why it is so important that all college students register to vote by 7 June so they can have their say in the most important vote of their lives.”
Ealing, Hammersmith and West London’s College Chief Executive, Garry Philips said: “We are delighted that Nick Boles, Minister of Business, Innovation and Skills has visited our college to talk to our students about their views on the EU referendum.
“It has been a lively debate and I’m pleased to hear that so many of our students are engaged and well informed on these vital issues.”
Students are being encouraged to vote and participate by visiting a government website .

The EU referendum takes place on June 23.
