Bangor University shortlisted for University of the Year and four other categories in WhatUni? Student Choice Awards
The nominations are in for the 2023 WhatUni? Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs), and Bangor University have been shortlisted in five categories this year, including University of the Year, lecturers and teaching quality, Students’ Union, accommodation and postgraduate.
The WUSCAs are the only annual awards that are based solely on the views of students studying in the UK and offer prospective students access to honest, unbiased data to make the right choices about their future.
Professor Nichola Callow, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Education, said, “Bangor University are delighted to be nominated for University of the Year and across a range of other categories in this year’s WhatUni? Student Choice Awards. We are a University which believes in providing support for all students to embrace opportunities, have the chance to develop, and realise their ambitions - with students at the heart of our decision-making. The Bangor University community is delighted that our students have shown their support and appreciation by nominating their University in these awards.”
Simon Emmett, CEO at IDP Connect, said: “The Whatuni awards celebrate the resilience and innovation within higher education, as well as championing the student voice to drive better experiences and outcomes for students. With some of the highest scores we have ever collected, institutions across the UK have highlighted the fantastic work of many in the sector, won the backing of their students and secured their nominations in this year’s competition. With the continuing cost-of-living challenges, the ongoing debate around international student numbers and Universities thinking more and more about what they can do to help their local communities, we’re proud to focus on all the good Universities do and celebrate their successes.”
