Join us for the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022

The Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA) is an annual event held in London to celebrate the hard work of universities, further education, and independent higher education providers in the United Kingdom. Each year, our review collectors collate approximately 41,000 verified reviews both on campuses across the country and online using the whatuni.com website.

The Whatuni Student Choice Awards are the pinnacle in the Higher Education awards season and are notable because students pick our winners.

Our verified reviews come from over 150 further and higher education institutions in the UK meaning that nearly all the tertiary education sector leadership and marketing teams have their eyes pinned on the outcomes of the Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

The results and the findings are central to our Whatuni brand – giving students honest, unbiased data to make the right choices about their future.

Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022: Review collection

The student voice is ready to speak again. And in 2022, the results will be once again delivered face-to-face at our awards ceremony in Central London.

Review collection is now underway for 2022

If you’d like to get in touch with the Whatuni team about a potential on-campus review collection, please email Kieran Hill at kieran.hill@idp.com.

Our new review form is now live, so please do encourage your students to review your institution at https://www.whatuni.com/reviews/.

2022 Award Catagories

This year, we have refined the categories in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards. Many of the categories will be awarded on a national and regional basis to allow students to make better, more informed decisions as they refine their education choices.

All categories will be based purely on verified student reviews making the WUSCA the only awards to be based exclusively on the student voice.

  • University of the Year

  • Career prospects

  • Lectures and teaching quality

  • Students’ Union

  • Halls/Student Accommodation

  • Facilities

  • Student life

  • Student support

  • Postgraduate

  • International

  • Small or specialist

  • Further Education College of the Year

After the success of the submission category in 2020 and 2021, one category will be a submission award and will be evaluated by a student panel selected by the Whatuni team.

The theme of this will be published soon with submission guidelines.
