NTU wins big at Whatuni Student Choice Awards

Wednesday May 3, 2023

NTU scooped two awards in this year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) including the coveted University of the Year accolade.

The WUSCAs recognise universities’ efforts to meet and exceed student experience and are the largest annual awards in the UK voted for exclusively by students.

The University of the Year award is a reflection of how students perceive their whole university experience. Students are asked to take into account everything that has shaped their time at an institution, both on a personal and academic level.

Simon Emmett, CEO at IDP Connect, organisers of the WUSCAs said: “The Whatuni awards celebrate creativity, resilience and innovation within higher education. Nottingham Trent University has shown this in leaps and bounds, securing the esteemed University of the Year award.”

“This year’s scores are significantly higher than previous years, highlighting the excellent work done across the sector.”

Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor and President at Nottingham Trent University said: “These awards are particularly special to us because they are voted for by our students, and I am proud to be able to call NTU the University of the Year. We are committed to giving our community a student experience like no other, and this accolade is testament to this hard work.

“Thank you to all our students for their support and for sharing their views, we are delighted that all our hard work is creating such a brilliant experience for you.”
