A COLLEGE has been recognised for its student support offering at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Oxford Business College finished third in the student support category at the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2021.

The George Street college was one of five nominations in the category, falling just short to UCEN Manchester and Middlesex University, which took first and second respectively.

This year was the fourth in a row the college received Whatuni accolades.

Managing director Padmesh Gupta said: “Receiving this award is a humbling experience.

“Competing against major universities and colleges is a tribute to our students, staff, governors and partners who have studied and worked tirelessly throughout the year, achieving the highest possible academic standards.

“Gaining recognition is a massive vote of confidence by our students to the college.

“Oxford Business College has set an unrivalled precedent of outperforming most other independent higher education institutions by winning nominations in 2018, 2019, an award in 2020 for best ‘Independent Higher Education Provider’ and now the bronze award for ‘Student Support’ this year in 2021.

“These awards highlight our students’ joy at being part of one big academic family at Oxford Business College.”

Award submissions were judged by a student panel made up of prospective and current university students.

One hundred applications were submitted by 55 UK institutions, across four categories.
