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. 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.
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. Academic standards are very high and there is an excellent graduate employment record, helped by a good careers service.
In March 2012, the university was presented with a Queen’s Anniversary prize for higher and further education in recognition of its research to help feed the world’s growing population. And, according to the Greenmetric of World Universities 2012, Nottingham is the second most environmentally friendly campus on the planet.
