What Uni Guide

As we move deeper into league table season, then the next set of information to come out is the result of the WhatUni.com Student Choice Awards.

This is not based on the range of metrics that the main league tables use, rather it is based more on opinions of students. It will be interesting later in the year to compare the views expressed where, with those that come out of the National Student Survey.

The top 10 universities this year are:

position Position last year University
12 3 Loughborough
2 7 Harper Adams
3 1 Swansea
4  n/a New College of the Humanities
5 8 Falmouth
6 10 Surrey
7 15 Bangor
8 6 Bath
9 12 UEA
10 17 Glasgow

Staffordshire remain in the same 96th place as last year

Looking at the different categories for SU:

Category This year Last year Top uni
