Student Support success!

Wrexham Glyndŵr University have come into some fantastic news, placing 15th out of 125 higher education institutions all across the UK for the quality of Student Support that we give.

TV personality and comedian, Jimmy Carr, held the event at a gala dinner in London. All of the prizes and places were fully determined by student reviews.

Vice-Chancellor Professor Maria Hinfelaar paid tribute to the University’s support teams over our Wrexham, Northop and London campuses. She said:

“Wrexham Glyndŵr University has a reputation for top-class student support and offering those who join us a comfortable, friendly atmosphere in which to live and learn.

That has been reflected in our performance in this category at this year’s WhatUni Student Choice Awards, so can I take this opportunity to thank everyone involved.”

Long may the great support continue!

NUS (National Union of Students) have a really helpful webpage to help you answer these questions, and more. Whether you are in Wales, England, Scotland or Northern Ireland, NUS have a clear and structured break-down on the different routes you may be able to take depending on your individual circumstances.
