Excellent night life, brilliant first year halls (particularly catered), nice students and a great city. Notts genuinely has everything you could want from a university and I would recommend it to anyone.
The University of Nottingham was founded in its original form in 1881 and has since gained a strong reputation among UK universities, as well as opened campuses in China and Malaysia.
It was one of the 17 universities that founded the Russell Group in 1994, meaning it’s committed to providing excellent research and teaching and has strong links with business and the public sector. In the Complete University Guide’s recent rankings of UK universities, it was voted in the top 25 for overall score.
Situated in the East Midlands, Nottingham is a vibrant city with two universities and a large student population of around 60,000. For those who enjoy an evening out, you’ll find plenty of pubs, bars and nightclubs and a lively nightlife scene, including plenty of student nights. It’s also one of the cheaper major cities in the UK.
Museums, theatres, galleries, cinemas and music venues all contribute to a city with lots of cultural attractions and it was made a UNESCO City of Literature in 2015. There are excellent shopping areas and several professional sports clubs and grounds, including two football clubs, a rugby union club and Trent Bridge, one of cricket’s most famous grounds.
