Professor Carol Tully, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students), said:

“We’re extremely proud of our relationship with our students and work in partnership with them to ensure that their time at Bangor University is both enjoyable and rewarding. It’s wonderful to see the hard work done across the University and the SU acknowledged in this way once again.”

Eleni Cashell, Editor of Whatuni, “Being nominated for an award is a huge achievement, because the only judges at the WUSCAs are the students themselves. It showcases to both prospective students and the higher education sector that your institution offers value for money, provides a good student experience and has a highly satisfied and supported student community.

Jonah Duffin, Chief Marketing Officer of parent company Hotcourses Group, "Nothing sells the value of an institution to prospective students more than hearing from current students how fantastic their university experience is. This nomination is an invaluable marketing tool." 

The official 2018 Whatuni Student Rankings will be announced on 19th of April at a ceremony in London. You can follow all the action on the night with the hashtag #WUSCA.
