This month marks the tenth year of our higher education site, Whatuni.com. It’s come a long way since 2007 and over the years it has grown to become the comprehensive course and university comparison site it is today.
After 10 years, Whatuni now boasts thousands of university reviews from students, with our Outreach team travelling over 25,000 miles a year to get them. We host 593 course providers and help millions of students every year to find a university. This year the Whatuni Destinations tool was also launched which helps careers advisors and teachers keep updated with their student’s university progress.
To celebrate this landmark 10th anniversary, Whatuni launched a social media campaign which involved sharing 10 years’ worth of memories on Instagram in a competition called “My Worst Birthday”. The email campaign received 1,800 clicks, the article had nearly 3,000 hits, there were 264 views of the video and the combined organic reach on Facebook was over 20,000.
The celebrations culminated with a party in the office, where the team watched a presentation before getting into the birthday spirit with games and a special Whatuni designed cake.
Marcella Collins, Managing Director UK Higher Education, Hotcourses Group, said: “To see so much passion, ambition and pride across the team was a testament to our belief in guiding students to make the very best decision. I’m excited to see Whatuni evolve as it continues to support and inspire millions of students through their higher education journey.”
This year is the fourth WUSCA ceremony where we’ll find out who students have voted as the best universities across 12 categories. This includes University Facilities, Course & Lecturers and Best University, as well as two new categories Giving Back and Postgraduate Satisfaction.
