Strathclyde has been nominated for three awards in the annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA), including for University of the Year.

The University is also shortlisted in the Postgraduate and International categories, while StrathUnion has been shortlisted for Student Union of the Year.

Student votes

WUSCA is the only Higher Education awards ceremony in the UK where institutions are solely judged and reviewed by students. The event celebrates the student voice and the hard work of higher education providers across the UK to deliver exceptional students experiences, with 35,000 verified reviews submitted by students to decide the winners of 12 categories.

Professor Sir Jim McDonald, Vice-Chancellor and Principal of Strathclyde, said:

At Strathclyde we are proud of our strong University community and we’re delighted our students have shown their support with these nominations.

“We are committed to ensuring that every student has the best possible education and university experience while studying at Strathclyde, in addition to preparing our students for the world of work by ensuring they have the skills, attributes and entrepreneurial outlook needed by modern employers.”

The winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on April 26.

Celebrate innovation

Simon Emmett, CEO at IDP Connect, the sponsors of the Awards, 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.”
