It was a night to celebrate for Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) at the Whatuni 2019 Student Choice Awards with its Student Support services named 3rd best in the country and its Accommodation team securing 6th place in their category.
The Whatuni Student Choice Awards are an annual celebration of the best universities and higher education institutions in the UK. Every single award has been voted for by students with over 41,000 from across the UK taking part this year.
Students at BGU were keen to praise the support they receive, both academic and personal, whilst studying along with the quality of the University's accommodation. Phil Davis, Head of Student Support at BGU, expressed his pride at the range of support offered by teams across the university being recognised by students:
“We are thrilled to have been recognised as one of the top three universities for student support services. This achievement is all the more important to us because the awards are driven by student opinions, it’s great that BGU’s students have made such positive remarks about the support available and that the services offered by our community are so highly valued”
Rachel Crane, Accommodation Manager at BGU, was also delighted to have been recognised by students:
“It is an honour to be in the WhatUni Accommodation Top 10, especially as this has come from our students sharing their positive experiences of BGU”
The Accommodation Team’s inclusion in the Whatuni Top 10 continues a successful year for them following Student Crowd placing BGU’s accommodation amongst the top 20 best accommodations in the country.
In a survey of over 17,000 students from across the UK carried out by the student review website Student Crowd, BGU’s “incredible accommodation” was praised for its cleanliness, social opportunities and ultimate high quality.
