The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Due to Covid restrictions, this year’s awards were not collected on uni campuses as usual, but instead based on submissions from institutions, which were then judged by our special student panel.

Enjoy the atmosphere and services but don't see a point in joining a society when they usually only meet up to drink.
Panoplo is great, one meeting with a personal tutor per semester is not enough, it's always 10 minutes max
Safety good, cost great
Library, seminar rooms great. Toilets could be cleaner, more water fountains would be good.
10 minute walk - fab!
Society events tend to be drinking events
With regards to tutors, students don't tend to meet with them outside the mandatory meetings
