Wrexham University Honoured at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2024

Wrexham University has been named the best university in Wales for its lecturers and teaching, student support and career prospects.

The university won the plaudits at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs), the only Higher Education awards where institutions are judged and reviewed solely by students.

At the annual awards, which took place at a ceremony in London presented by actor and comedian Lenny Henry, Wrexham University was placed:

  • First in Wales and second in the UK for Lecturers and Teaching
  • First in Wales and fifth in the UK for Student Support
  • First in Wales and fourth in the UK for Career Prospects
  • Second in Wales and fifth in the UK for University Halls

Overall, the university was placed as second in Wales in the University of the Year category and 17th in the UK overall out of 101 institutions.

Professor Maria Hinfelaar, Vice-Chancellor of Wrexham University, said:

“We are thrilled to have been placed first in Wales for Lecturers and Teaching, Student Support and Career Prospects.

“Our performance UK-wide is also fantastic – to be ranked second in the UK for lecturers and teaching is true testament to the hard work and dedication of our academic colleagues. We’re also delighted to have finished in the top 20 in the University of the Year category.

“I’m incredibly proud of these rankings and it feels even more gratifying that these awards were voted for by our students.

“At Wrexham University, we work tirelessly to ensure our students are provided with the best possible opportunities to succeed in their learning – and it’s wonderful to know that our students evidently recognise this by voting for the university in the WUSCAs.”

This year saw more than 39,000 student reviews being collected from over 100 universities in the UK.
