The Whatuni Student Choice Awards (the WUSCAs) 2024

The Whatuni Student Choice Awards (the WUSCAs) 2024 will be returning to the Brewery London on Wednesday 24 April! The WUSCAs 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.

Announcing our WUSCAs 2024 host

To host the evening, one of UK's best-known comedians, writer and award-winning actor, Sir Lenny Henry CBE will be front and centre. Sir Lenny has had over four decades in the entertainment industry making thousands roar laughing through stand-up tours, TV and theatre shows.

Alongside his work on stage and screen, Sir Lenny Henry is best known for his role in Comic Relief, the charity he co-founded with Richard Curtis in the 1980s. We look forward to welcoming him to illuminate the WUSCAs stage!

The review collection 2024 cycle is officially closed as of Thursday 29th February 2024. The student reviews, collected (from September 2023 - February 2024) from institutions across the UK form the foundation of the WUSCAs, which determine the universities which are shortlisted, all driven by the student voice.
