Nottingham is traditionally one of the most popular universities for undergraduates. And not only with students from the UK – people from 150 different nations come here, and there are also campuses in Malaysia and China; UK students can spend part of their degree studying at either of those. It has great facilities for sports and the arts, and the student union is one of the largest and most active in the UK, with more than 250 societies, sports clubs, student-run services, associations and a variety of events on offer. There’s also an award-winning student radio station and a student-run theatre that regularly takes performances to the Edinburgh festival. Academic standards are very high and there is an excellent graduate employment record, helped by a good careers service.


Nottingham is great for shopping, restaurants and nightlife. There’s a lively and mixed social scene, and it’s very student-friendly. The attractive campus is a short distance away, with landscaped grounds and lots of trees. A free bus between campuses, good rail and road links, and an international airport nearby. New cycle lanes have been incorporated into University Park campus, complementing those in the surrounding areas, and a bike hire scheme has been promoted to students as part of the university’s GoGreener campaign.
