The WhatUni? Student Choice Awards are an annual celebration of the best universities and higher education institutions in the UK. Every single award is voted for by the people that matter the most: real students, who give their opinions on the services that matter most to them. Out of 160 institutions who were nominated and after over 41,000 votes cast, we’re pleased to announce that CSU has been placed in the Top 10 of all Student Unions in the UK! We were also one of only a handful of Unions to significantly improve our rank from last year’s survey, climbing 17 places from 26th in the 2017/18 survey to finish at 9th in 2018/19.
‘What fantastic news to have finished 9th overall in the WhatUni’s survey,’ said CSU President Ben France. ‘This is a huge achievement for Chester Students’ Union and a welcome confirmation of the effort we have put in to improve our work for students. The best thing about these awards is that they reflect feedback from students, so a massive thank you to all of you who nominated CSU.’
All we can really say is - thank you. We truly appreciate that so many of you took the time to cast a vote or share your thoughts with one of the WhatUni team this year. We wouldn’t have won with your support, and in return we promise to do our best to keep CSU going from strength to strength!
