Program Description:

Nottingham is a multi-campus University. Our 330-acre University Park Campus, set in extensive woodland, parks and playing fields, is one of the largest and most attractive campuses in the UK. We also have our own Medical School linked to one of the most influential teaching hospitals and further campus for Biosciences, including agriculture and food sciences, at Sutton Bonington.

Nottingham is one of Britain's leading research universities. In the last Research Assessment Exercise 16 schools achieved the highest ratings. Nationally, this university is known for its excellence in research. Nottingham is one of the top four universities earning research funding from private industry and commerce. In 1999/00 research awards rose to a new high of £68 million. Our research has a major influence on society and culture, science and technology, the health of the community, and the environment.

Nottingham City
The city combines the best of old and new. Modern shopping centers and traditional markets on pretty pedestrian streets offer everything from unique designer boutiques to High Street favorites. Cultural life thrives. The Royal Concert Hall attracts well-known names from the classical and pop and rock worlds and is the second home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. There are two theatres, including the lovingly restored 18th-century Theatre Royal, which showcases top-class theatre, ballet and opera, and film buffs can enjoy varied viewing at multi-screen and arts cinemas.

Many fine old buildings remain in the city, including the 15th-century church of St Mary on High Pavement, a centuries-old cave system, Georgian town houses and several picturesque pubs. Some have medieval origins, including The Trip to Jerusalem at the foot of Castle Rock, reputedly the oldest pub in England. Others, reflecting the latest trends in contemporary design, can be found in the Lace Market and vibrant Canalside area. There are cafe-bars on every corner and more than 100 pubs, clubs and restaurants in the center alone. The city's nightclubs are amongst the best in the country and the live music is second to none.

The University has twelve Halls of Residence on the University Park Campus and two on the Jubilee Campus. All halls are mixed but some have single sex blocks. Halls offer common rooms and social facilities. All study bedrooms are fully furnished and are equipped with voice and data points. Some study bedrooms have en-suite bathroom facilities and some have shared access to bathrooms. All Halls are full board (21 meals a week).

The University also has self-catering accommodation: Broadgate Park, on the edge of the University Park Campus and Raleigh Park, adjacent to the Jubilee Campus. The self-catering flats are shared between 5 - 7 students with communal kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities. Visit the Housing homepage for additional information.
