Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) is a double award winner at the prestigious Whatuni Student Choice Awards, having beaten all other UK universities to take the top prize in the Student Support and Halls & Student Accommodation categories.
The prestigious Whatuni Student Choice Awards are nominated and judged by students from across the UK.

The Reverend Canon Professor Peter Neil, Vice Chancellor of Bishop Grosseteste University, said:
"I am thrilled and immensely proud that BGU has been awarded not one, but two prestigious awards at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards. To receive this recognition, voted for by the very students we care for and support every day, is an incredible honour.
"At BGU, we strive to provide our students with the highest level of education possible, but equally important is our commitment to creating an environment that is supportive, inclusive, and caring. Our university community is passionate about empowering and nurturing our students so that they can reach their full potential and achieve their goals.
"Winning these awards is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our staff and students, who work tirelessly to ensure that this university is an exceptional place to learn and grow.

The institutions recognised have successfully adapted, created and implemented fantastic initiatives to support and engage students, which our awards are thrilled to celebrate."
