NUS supports new university service from Which?Coming soon: our new website for students
04 July 2012
The National Union of Students (NUS) is supporting Which?'s new university website and will be providing us with exclusive content from students' unions.
Update: the Which? University website has now launched - it's free to use, helping students search for and compare almost 30,000 degree courses at 280 universities and colleges.
The new website, which we're launching later this year, will be providing free and independent information and advice to help prospective students choose the right course and university.
Which? chief executive Peter Vicary-Smith says: 'With university fees at an all-time high, it's vital that students make informed decisions about their choice of university.
'Our partnership with the NUS will help ensure this new service offers high-quality, comprehensive, relevant information and advice that empowers students to make the best decision for them.'
Navigating higher education
NUS president Liam Burns says: 'It would be a scandal if only those with access to the social capital derived from parents who went to university were able to navigate a higher education playing field that the government has made increasingly uneven.
'As universities are increasingly competing with each other in a market and therefore cannot provide the impartial resources prospective applicants need, and as the government will not do so, we look forward to working with Which? to provide comprehensive information and high quality advice for all.'
Choose the best course and university
The new website will provide expert knowledge and insight on everything from applying to university to sorting out finances. It will also offer trustworthy advice for students, by students, and a personalised search to narrow down options.
