Norland College take top spot in the independent HE category at the 2019 Whatuni Student Choice Awards

Norland College has taken the top spot in the independent HE category at the 2019 Whatuni Student Choice Awards, as announced at an awards ceremony in London last week.

Noland College scored an impressive 4.9 with 2018 winners Point Blank Music School coming in second overall.

This was the second year that there has been an Independent Higher Education category within the WUSCAs, allowing smaller and more specialist providers from the independent sector to receive the recognition that they deserve. The category ranked participating independent providers on their student experience scores from student ratings with the overall award going to the top-ranked institution.

Norland College is a specialist provider of early years training and education based in Bath. In March 2019, Norland College was granted taught degree awarding powers by the Privy Council; a major step towards Norland’s ambition to become the first specialist early years university in the world.

IHE Director of External Relations Marie Clark said:

“The WUSCAs provide a great opportunity to shine a light on the dedication of our members to the learning experience and success of their students.

“The very impressive 4.9 achieved by Norland College is a great example of the focus that our members have on student learning and the student experience.”
