Students give UCEN Manchester the thumbs up

Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022

Success for UCEN Manchester as they feature in the shortlist for the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2022.

UCEN Manchester has been shortlisted in two categories in this year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA), the leading higher education awards ceremony based solely on students’ views. 

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 providers are uniquely recognised by students for delivering an exceptional experience. UCEN Manchester has been shortlisted in the Small or Specialist category.

UCEN Manchester has also been shortlisted in the Outreach and Widening Participation Submission Award category judged by the Whatuni Student Advisory Board, a specially chosen panel made up of prospective and current university students. This year’s submission award recognises institutions that developed comprehensive outreach and widening participation initiatives for prospective students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Michael Walsh, Dean, UCEN Manchester, said:
“Our commitment to providing our students with a career focused learning experience that puts them on a direct path into employment and offering the right support to help them thrive and succeed is something we are incredibly proud of."

To have what we do recognised in this way by our students is amazing and we are delighted to have been shortlisted in this year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

This is the second year that UCEN Manchester has been recognised in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards, winning the Student Support category in the 2021 awards.

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.
