About
University of Nottingham might not be the oldest in England – it was founded in 1798 as a teacher-training college but didn’t become a uni until 1948 – but ranks 76th in the world. It is in the top 1% of universities internationally. Domestically it’s reputation is quite good and it has a long list of notable alumni. Even though, no British prime-minister went to Nottingham, it has its fair share of Malaysian kings, British MPs and even D.H. Lawrence (the author of the scandalous Lady Chatterley’s Lover).

What’s more, alumni and current students swear by Nottingham’s social life. As a Campus Uni, it has its fair share of on-site facilities with drinks rarely costing more than a pound or two. Having said that, the city-centre is a 10 minute bus ride (0r £10 cab) away and there’s usually a special event for University if Nottingham students at a club in the city every night! Baywatch at Ocean anyone?

Nottingham also offers plenty to see for culture-vultures, Nottingham Contemporary alone is a must-visit. Additionally, the large student body, one of the country’s largest, makes for plenty of cultural clubs to involve oneself with.

Still not convinced? Since recently, University of Nottingham has two campuses abroad in Malaysia and China. We’re sensing year-abroad opportunities aplenty here.
