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 ... Read review

I never visited Nottingham before I came here, as I live in Bournemouth and it is a very long drive. I have found the teaching to be superb, and they are always most happy to help you if you have any problems. The modern language office is also very ..." Read review

"...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 open days at all the universities I had applied for. This also meant I got to miss double Maths on Wednesdays while I was at the open days, which was a bonus. In this review I hope to outline some of ..." Read review

Medicine and the interview.

AdvantagesApplying for Medicine in Nottingham is very respectable as it combines clinical knowledge with basic lectures.

DisadvantagesWork for 2 degrees in 5 years whereas most of the other unis have 6 yrs to do it in.

"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, I thought I would apply as I didn't have anything to lose. Despite having sent a decent UCAS statement off, I couldn't help but become haunted by what ..." Read review

Nottingham University lives up to reputation...

AdvantagesBeautiful Campus, Good Reputation, Good Student lifestyle

DisadvantagesCampus far from town, Student bar not great...

"...14 halls if you're on University park. The standard of accommodation is really very good. If you want en-suite, you can probably get it. Halls also all have their own bars and some are very attractive buidings as well. (IE Cripps, the old bit of Hu-stu and Lenton House). The downside is that all halls are fully catered and the food isnt great. Although its all part of the experience. If you want self-catering you can live in University owned Broadgate ..."

A students opinion...

AdvantagesGReat repuation, great campuses, and a great way of life.

DisadvantagesYears in Industry aren't compulsary, and for the less self motivating, the fredom can come as a shock.

"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. The second year I spent in a rented house in Radford. I took the third year off, and took up a placement with IBM. This year I have returned to complete ..." Read review
