I originally wanted to go to Birmingham University and has Nottingham as my back-up. I didn't have a huge amount of choice, as there are few places in the country that do my course (French, German and Russian). I never visited Nottingham before I came here, as I live in Bournemouth and it is a...

Nottingham is undoubtedly a very popular, beautiful university which many will find appealing. However, it definitely has its downsides (oversubscribed courses and a University that runs itself like a business rather than an academic institution, an antiintellectual culture on campus, and an...

“Robin Hood studied here”

I was not exactly adventurous when I left home in Leicester to go to university in Nottingham. I had considered Sheffield, Leeds, Durham and Manchester, but in the end opted for somewhere nearer to home. I was able to make an informed decision about which university to choose as I had attended...

I chose Nottingham primarily because of its beautiful campus. Having decided on the course I wanted to do at Birmingham, I visited Nottingham for an open day. I was told that Nottingham was one of the most impressive campuses in the UK, but I didnt expect this to sway my decision. However, having...

When I first decided that i wanted to apply to Nottingham for a place in the Med School, I was strongly advised against it as my school claimed that they were biased against Northern Students and also students who had applied to Oxbrige. I hadn't however, but I was still a Northern lass. Anyway...

“ The most fun 3 years!”

published 28/09/2004

Beautiful campus, great nightlife

Overpriced off-campus student accommodation

I had the best three years I could ever imagine at the University of Nottingham, and I could probably write a full-blown dissertation about the place, but I will try and be as succinct as I can! Freshers' week Or Week One as it is known. A great start to the uni experience, with organised parties...

While the University of Nottingham is highly regarded, it manages to avoid the stigma and social stunting associated with the Oxford Cambridge experience. I am a third year student completing my final year of a BSC in Computer Science. I spent my first year on the main campus, in Rutland Hall...

“Thanks Nottingham!”

published 11/11/2006

Excellent campus, good rep and generally awesome

campus is massive

Having experienced two Universities in as many years I can definitely say Nottingham is awesome. After a fairly unsuccessful first attempt at Uni elsewhere I decided to venture to pastures new and ended up transferring to the University of Nottingham. Having visited Nottingham quite a bit I knew...

“Campus Accomodation”

published 14/09/2000

Cheap bars and a pretty campus

I have to go to work now :(

I have just finished my three years at this university and I loved the vast majority of the minutes I spent there. What I would say to anyone who has decided to come here is be careful of the accomodation you chose because it has a big effect on your participation and enjoyment of university life...

Nottingham University is the most oversubscribed University in the country and having spent 2 years there so far, it's not hard to understand why. Nottingham is mixes campus university life with being close to the city centre very well and there's so much to experience when you're there. You...

Nottingham rocks my world

Lectures don't

This time last year I was beginning to get nervous...what if I don't get my grades....what if I don't get in??? Then after I got the grades for my offer I chilled out a bit, relaxed. Until about 2 weeks before fresher's week when nerves began to kick in big style. What would have set my mind at...

Before I got to the UK I had rather high expectations of Nottingham University, what with its highly, not to mentioned widely, advertised courses and excellent campus facilities, and I must say I wasn't disappointed! The campus here is really beautiful,with wide open fields, lush greenery, little...

Not for me

It is central.

The place, the people, the course.

I spent five months at this university and I have to say, emphatically, it was the worst time in my entire life. I can think of more or less nothing good to say about my time at this there. Firstly, I will begin with the university itself. It is a few miles out of Nottingham and can feel very...

I graduated from the university of Nottingham in June 2000 after studying for three years for a BA in Economics and Philosophy, and I hope to offer my experience to anyone thinking of either taking a similar course, or indeed intending to apply to the university itself. I decided on Nottingham...

“Nottingham Uni.”

Good reputaion, lovely city

public school boy/girl idiots

Nottingham was just ranked 5th IN Britian by the independent newspaper, not a bad place. Acceptance is fairly strict to get into the uni, 20-24 points avergae and be warned the exams are hard. Doing engineering myself, the step from a l;evels was a very large and sometime tricky one. The...
