The WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2020 logo displays the University's nomination for University of the Year.

Edge Hill University has been shortlisted in four categories in this year’s WhatUni Student Choice Awards, including the coveted University of the Year title.

Students have also placed Edge Hill on the UK shortlist for Best University Facilities, Best Job Prospects and Best Student Support.

The awards, now in their 7th year, are the only university experience awards based purely on thousands of student reviews and feedback.

This latest news follows hot on the heels of the recent announcement that Edge Hill is also one of only two on the shortlist for the Northern University of the Year title in this year’s Educate North Awards.

Students walk through the University campus which is in full leaf under a blue sky.

Vice-Chancellor Dr John Cater said: “We genuinely put students at the heart of everything we do and to be shortlisted for no less than four categories in these prestigious awards is testimony to our commitment of putting this ethos into action.

“Reviews and comments are absolutely vital to improving the student experience and it’s because of this invaluable feedback that we have been nominated, which shows we are definitely doing things right.

“Our focus on students benefits everyone – the students themselves, the employers who recruit our capable and confident graduates and the people whose lives are enriched with our alumni community.”

Over the past 12 months the University has continued to strive to create the best possible environment for learning and living, while providing excellent support for students to guide them throughout all stages of their journey.

Job prospects for Edge Hill graduates remains high with 97.3% of students being employed within six months of graduation (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education 2016/17).

The winners of both sets of awards will be announced on 23 April.
