Nominations for the Edurank Awards 2019 have now closed, and the team have been inundated with loads of entries from institutions all over the world.

We are pleased to reveal the shortlist (AKA, the top four) for each category. Remember, five of these awards are judged by a panel of students, from our friends at Student Hut. The panel is the UK’s specialist audience insight panel, which provides institutions and brands insight into the student audience.

Well done to everyone who entered in the Edurank Awards this year, we were blown away by the standard of entries. If you didn’t make the top four, do not fear – the standard was ridiculously high.
