Edge Hill University has been shortlisted in the Accommodation category in this year’s WhatUni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) after winning the category in 2017.

The shortlisted universities have been recognised by their students for offering an incredible university experience, and this year’s shortlist is the result of a record-breaking 36,423 reviews from students around the UK.

Winners are to be announced at the annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards ceremony on the 19th April 2018, presented by stand-up comedian Katherine Ryan.

Now in their fifth year, the awards provide prospective students with an unbiased, student-led alternative to traditional university ranking systems. The awards are based on averages taken from tens of thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on Whatuni.com.

Jonah Duffin, Chief Marketing Officer of 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.”

Eleni Cashell, Editor of Whatuni said: “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.”
