Hartpury University has been shortlisted in four categories for the prestigious 2019 Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

The specialist education institution is among the nominations for the following accolades:

  • Courses and Lecturers
  • University facilities
  • Job Prospects
  • Student Support

The Whatuni Student Choice Awards are the only university experience awards based on student reviews.

Now in their sixth year, the WUSCAs offer prospective students an unbiased, student-led alternative to traditional university ranking systems.

The awards, for which there are 10 nominations in each category, are based on averages taken from tens of thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on Whatuni.com.

This year’s winners will be announced at a special ceremony hosted by comedian Omid Djalili at The Brewery in London on Thursday 25 April.

Hartpury University is home to more than 1,800 students completing undergraduate and postgraduate degrees as well as higher education diplomas and postgraduate research in Sport, Equine, Animal, Agriculture and Veterinary Nursing.

Students have access to one of the world’s largest equine educational facilities and cutting-edge sports facilities, an extensive animal collection, an animal therapy centre, science laboratories with industry standard equipment and a fully working farm.

It is the only educational institution in Gloucestershire to be awarded Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), which ranks providers based on their teaching and learning for students, putting it among the top higher education providers nationally.

Ninety-seven per cent of graduates from Hartpury University are also in employment or further study six months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey, 2013-16 average).

Hartpury University was ranked third out of more than 100 UK education institutions in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey 2018 (PTES), with an 88 per cent overall student satisfaction score compared with a sector average of 79 per cent.
