DN Colleges Group nominated for top education award
DN Colleges Group has been shortlisted for an Award at this year’s Whatuni? Student Choice Awards 2020 (WUSCA), defending their winning title from last year’s event.
Now in their seventh year WUSCA offer prospective students an unbiased, student-led alternative to traditional university ranking systems. The awards are based on averages taken from tens of thousands of reviews submitted by students and published on Whatuni.com.
DN Colleges Group, which comprises of North Lindsey College, Doncaster College and University Centre and the UCNL in Scunthorpe, has now made it into the shortlisted categories for HE in FE Colleges for three years in a row, winning last year and runner-up the year before, evidencing the excellent experience their higher education students receive.
Debbie Jensen (Head of Academic Programmes, UCNL) said, “We are delighted to have been shortlisted again after winning the award last year. This award is particularly important to us because it is our students who have taken the time to go online and provide the excellent reviews we have received. Knowing that the students value their time with us and appreciate the support provided, means the world to our staff.’
Winners of the awards will be chosen on the night which was due to be hosted by award-winning and BAFTA nominated presenter Claudia Winkleman. The celebration has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak across the UK, but the award winners will be announced as planned.
UCNL Sport and Exercise student Leigh Sharpe said: “It’s quite a big thing, it puts our name on the map. When you study here the lecturers are always available to help you, I would encourage people to come here 100%.”
Steve Johnstone, Director of UCNL adds: “What this demonstrates is that there is a consistent level of support provided to our students. It’s important to us that we create measured growth, but that alongside that we maintain student satisfaction and a great student experience.” To read all the student reviews, visit https://www.whatuni.com/university-course-reviews/north-lindsey-college/6895/
