WUSCA 2022 Shortlist

We are delighted to announce the shortlisted finalists of the Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA) 2022, an annual celebration hosted by IDP Connect in celebration of excellence within the higher education sector. Over the last few months, our WUSCA team has visited campuses around the UK to collect reviews submitted by students themselves, alongside reviews submitted online via the Whatuni.com website. Over 30,000 verified student reviews have been submitted across our categories to determine this year’s coveted WUSCA shortlist.  

The student-led approach of review collection means that shortlisted universities are uniquely recognised by students for delivering an exceptional experience. It’s also the only annual awards ceremony solely based on the views of current students studying in the UK, allowing prospective students to access honest, unbiased data to make the right choices about their future.
