This week, we are pleased to announce the Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCA 2023) recipients, an annual event that celebrates the student perspective and recognises excellence in the education sector.

Beyond the excitement of the awards ceremony, there is a wealth of valuable data and insights. As overall satisfaction is no longer included in the NSS this year, these reviews serve as a crucial resource for students when making decisions and give voice to those currently studying. The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) have once again highlighted the exceptional efforts made by higher education institutions across the UK to provide their students with a top-quality educational experience. collected over 35,000 real student reviews on campuses and using the Whatuni website.

AHZ Associates extends our warmest congratulations to all the winners and nominees of the 2023 WUSCAs! If you want to know more about the category winners and the awards ceremony, check out the results-
