Loughborough named University of the Year

Loughborough University has received the top accolade at this year’s Whatuni Student Choice Awards

The results of the 2015 student rankings were revealed at an event in London last night.  Of the 113 universities who met the minimum threshold of 100 verified student reviews, 39 universities were shortlisted across 10 categories. 

Loughborough University has not only won the top nod, but also finished in first place for two further categories: Accommodation, and Student Union – a category they won last year as well. 

Simon Emmett, Managing Director of Whatuni.com, added: “We are very pleased to announce Loughborough as the University of the Year for the 2015 Whatuni Student Choice Awards; it came as no surprise after looking at how strongly they were rated by students across eight categories.  The rankings are a great opportunity to engage with both current university students and those at the start of their higher education journey.  The reviews are a fundamental part of whatuni.com.  They represent the most current, accurate, and accessible resource for today’s sixth form and college students, helping them find the right uni. We’re really proud to be a part of that journey.”

The Whatuni Student Rankings are based on averages taken from thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on whatuni.com, and cover the following 10 categories: Accommodation, City Life, Clubs & Societies, Courses & Lecturers, Job Prospects, Student Union, Uni Facilities, Support Services, International, and an Overall rating which counts towards the University of the Year title. 

Baroness Estelle Morris, former Education Secretary, commented: “In an election year, we talk a lot about students having a powerful voice in higher education. But if this is to happen, they will require quality information to inform their decisions. Student reviews are an essential way of both providing feedback to universities and information to the next generation of students as they decide where to study.”
