Hartpury has again been ranked among the top 10 universities in the UK in the annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

The specialist education institution was shortlisted along with nine other universities in two categories – University Facilities and Student Support.

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

Now in their seventh year, the WUSCA offer prospective students 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.

Russell Marchant, Vice-Chancellor of Hartpury University, said: “We’re pleased to have been ranked among the top 10 universities in the UK in two categories in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

“We’ve invested more than £50 million in our campus facilities in the past decade, as part of our continuing commitment to providing our students with the best possible learning experience.

“We have implemented a number of policies and initiatives to ensure our students have access to academic, practical and emotional support, within a friendly and welcoming campus environment that encourages and fosters positive mental health and wellbeing.

“We strive to provide an enhanced student experience in all aspects of life on campus, and input from our students provides us with a greater understanding of what we’re doing well and where we can do better.

“It’s encouraging to see the work we’re doing being reflected positively in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards, but of course there is always room for improvement.”

Hartpury University is home to more than 1,800 students completing undergraduate, postgraduate degrees and PhDs, 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.
