York St John University has been shortlisted in the University of the Year category 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 website. The student-led approach of review collection means that shortlisted universities are uniquely recognised by students for delivering an exceptional experience. 

Professor Karen Bryan, Vice Chancellor of York St John University, said: 

“I am delighted to see that York St John has been shortlisted for Whatuni University of the Year. It’s always heartening to be recognised by students, and the positive, student-led reviews are a credit to all staff who work hard to deliver an exceptional experience. I look forward to hearing the winners announced and wish all our fellow nominees the best of luck”.   

The Whatuni Student Choice Awards, hosted by IDP Connect, is an annual event celebrating the hard work of higher education providers across the United Kingdom.  

Simon Emmett, Chief Executive, IDP Connect, commented: 

“Being shortlisted for one of our Whatuni Student Choice Awards is exceptional. To be recognised so highly by your students is the pinnacle of excellence. Institutions should be proud of making it to this stage in the process and should celebrate the experience they’ve delivered for their students over the past 12 months.”   

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 Tuesday, 24 May 2022, at a black-tie awards dinner at the East Wintergarden, London hosted by a well-known television personality. 

Winners will also be published on the website with a complete breakdown of all categories, including how the rest of the university sector performed.
