The University of Stirling has been shortlisted in the national Whatuni Student Choice Awards.

Stirling has been nominated in two categories – “postgraduate” and “giving back”, which recognises “innovative and impactful campaigns and projects that give back to a community, be it internationally, nationally, locally, or within an institution”.

The awards are based on feedback from students, with 41,811 reviews collected across 160 participating institutions.

Professor Leigh Sparks, Deputy Principal (Education and Students), said: “We’re delighted to be shortlisted in two important categories in these awards, which are particularly meaningful as they’re based on feedback from our students.”

Astrid Smallenbroek, Students’ Union President, said: “Every year, we work closely with the University on a wide range of initiatives to further improve the student experience at Stirling, so we’re really pleased this has been recognised in these awards.”

Katie Duncan, Head of Communications at awards organisers IDP Connect, said: “In a challenging climate for higher education institutions, there is nothing more rewarding than being recognised by their students for delivering such positive experiences.

“The reviews by current students that make up these nominations are invaluable for prospective students who use them to make decisions about their future.”

On 25 April, Whatuni will host their sixth annual Student Choice Awards in London, announcing the winners of 15 university experience award categories. The evening will be presented by comedian Omid Djalili.
