The Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA) is the only Higher Education awards ceremony in the UK where institutions are solely judged and reviewed by students themselves across a variety of categories. 

Our annual event is a celebration of the student voice and the hard work of higher education providers across the UK to deliver exceptional students experiences.  

To host the evening, renowned comedian, actor and writer Ellie Taylor will be front and centre. Her work includes hosting Series 5 of The Great Pottery Throwdown, Let's Make A Scene, You Won't Believe This (Channel 4) and Cheat (Netflix). She is known for playing 'Sassy' on the smash hit, multi award-winning Ted Lasso, and multiple appearances on Britain’s best loved panel shows including 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Live at the Apollo. 

Awards Show timings: 6.30 pm - 11.30 pm
