The University of Nottingham is ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide and is University of the Year for graduate employment. These accolades are testament to both the strength of our academic research and the truly outstanding student experience we provide. Our students enjoy a well-rounded education – both in and out of the classroom – with opportunities for personal and professional development through courses, sport and extracurricular activities, study abroad and more. Perhaps the thing everyone remembers, though, are the beautiful campuses and state of the art facilities, all just a stone’s throw from the excitement of Nottingham city centre.
