Harper Adams University is revealed today as a finalist in seven categories in the 2015 Whatuni Student Choice Awards.
Over the past 12 months more than 20,000 students across the UK have cast their opinions for the next Whatuni Student Rankings.
The rankings are based on averages taken from thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on the site, and cover nine categories: accommodation, city life, clubs and societies, course and lecturers, job prospects, student union, university facilities, support services, and an “overall rating” which counts towards the title University of the Year.
For a second year, Harper Adams is short-listed for University of the Year and for job prospects.
The university is also in the running for the student support, clubs and societies, facilities, accommodation and courses awards – a total of seven nominations from nine categories.
“This is fantastic news – it’s great to see Harper Adams students giving such great feedback about the university,” said Andy Jefferies, from the university’s Student Services team.
“National recognition of the outstanding education, support, social life and facilities offered here is richly deserved. Harper Adams students have the best of everything – top notch resources, the best lecturers and an amazing social life – then they graduate and go on to do great things!”
Vice Chancellor, Dr David Llewellyn said: “It is fantastic to know that our students think so highly of the work we are doing to give them a top-quality education and a well-rounded experience of university life.
“We are delighted to have been nominated in so many categories, and would like to thank our students for their support in bringing this about.”
This year, 111 universities met the minimum threshold to be considered for a Student Choice Award; and 39 universities received a nomination. The official 2015 Whatuni
Student Rankings will be announced on the 23rd of April at a ceremony in London.
Simon Emmett, Managing Director Whatuni.com, added: “For prospective students, being able to hear first-hand about the quality of education and realistic expectations for life at uni is an invaluable resource when making a decision to pursue degree-level studies.
“Our hope is that the student university rankings contribute to the research and preparation required for each student to choose the right uni for them.”
