WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2023

BNU makes Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2023 shortlist in four categories

Buckinghamshire New University has been shortlisted in four categories in this year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA), the leading higher education awards ceremony based solely on student choice.

Each year, the WUSCA team receives approximately 35,000 verified reviews from on-campus visits across the country and online submissions via the whatuni.com website.

BNU has been shortlisted in the following categories:

  • Student Support
  • Students’ Union
  • International
  • Cost-of-living response

Vice Chancellor Professor Nick Braisby‍ said: “We’re delighted and proud that direct feedback from our students has seen BNU shortlisted for our student support, how we’ve responded to the cost-of-living crisis and for the way we support our international students. It’s also great to see Bucks Students’ Union recognised for its activities that we are very proud to support through our important partnership.”

Simon Emmet, 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.”

The WUSCAs are the only annual awards that are based solely on the views of real students studying in the UK and allow students to access honest, unbiased data to make the right choices about their future on the Whatuni platform.

This year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards winners will be announced on Wednesday April 26, 2023 at The Brewery in London.
