Leeds Trinity University has been recognised for supporting students during their degree and employability prospects after graduation, in the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017 shortlist.
Led by student nominations of more than 26,000 across 12 award categories, Leeds Trinity has been shortlisted for two awards for Student Support and Job Prospects.
Tim Leadbeater, Director of Student Support at Leeds Trinity University, said:
"We are committed to enhancing the student experience at Leeds Trinity University, and pride ourselves on having an excellent support team with a range of support services available – so we're delighted to have been shortlisted for these awards.
"Whether students need help with assignments, finding work during or after study, or just need someone to talk to, our team are always happy to help."
Support services at Leeds Trinity include: personal support including counselling, dyslexia and disability support and on-site health advice; learning support from The Learning Hub, peer learning mentors and development tutors; and career support including professional work placements, support through the Trinity Enterprise Centre and volunteering opportunities.
The range of services on offer, and the institution's commitment to offering a six week professional placement with every undergraduate degree, has contributed to 95% of students at Leeds Trinity being employed or in further study within six months of graduating.
Alumna Sophie Merrick, who now works at Free Radio in Birmingham, said:
"The support I got from the staff at Leeds Trinity was amazing. I always used to joke that they just sit waiting for my email, because any time I had a problem or query, they'd respond within minutes! The placements I did during my course were invaluable – this, and the support of my tutor, was key to me securing a job after graduation."
The winners of the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2017 will be announced at a ceremony in London on Thursday 6 April.
