The Whatuni Student Choice Awards are based on the unbiased and honest views of students at university – the only annual awards based solely on student opinion.

Nottingham Trent University won this year's award for best UK university for student life. 

“NTU has excellent and modern facilities available for students to use. The libraries are open 24 hours and the staff across all departments are very helpful. Teaching staff care about their students and do not mind going above and beyond for their success … In terms of student life, the campus location has a huge role in this. Although some campuses are far from the city centre, there are regular transport methods such as the bus or tram available even late at night … There is so much to get involved with and lots to talk about. I would definitely recommend Nottingham Trent University!” – Student review on Whatuni

What to look out for in student life at university 

Student life encompasses friendships, socialising, sports, extracurricular activities, and on- and off-campus entertainment. All these activities support you having a fun time at uni, help provide a positive sense of community and promote good mental health. When you’re making your uni choices, don’t discount the social side of student life!
