RAU shortlisted for national student choice awards

The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) is among the top 10 universities in the University of the Year and Job Prospects categories in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2020.

Now in their seventh year, the Whatuni Student Choice Awards are a celebration of the best universities and higher education institutions in the UK and are based directly on reviews of students themselves.

Whatuni gathered over 41,000 student reviews from 150 participating universities. It is the second year in a row that the RAU has been nominated in these two categories.

This year’s winners were announced online via Twitter on 8 July.

Cherie Metcalf, Head of Marketing and Communications at IDP Connect, said: "The UK’s Higher Education institutions represent the future for so many people both within the UK and from overseas whether they are starting out or further progressing their academic journey. Expectations are always very high, which makes receiving recognition in the form of real student reviews such a wonderful honour.

“The WUSCAs reflect the voice of the student, and for an institution to have been nominated in 2020 means they are making a significant, positive difference to the experience, and the lives, of their students.”

The RAU is offers a range of courses, including business, environment, wildlife, equine, agriculture, real estate and rural land management.
