    I am applying to NTU to start in 2012 and the course I'm doing (spanish) is on the clifton campus.

    So far I've heard nightlife and stuff in nottingham is really good and I've visited the Uni and really like it so I'm hoping to make it my first choice.

    They only thing is, what is it like to live away from the city centre? Is it a hassle get into/back from town on a night out? Or even during the day?

    Is there much to do on the campus, or are all societies and events based on the city campus?

    Just anything you can tell me or reccommend to me about living on clifton would be great thanks!

    Also, if you are applying to NTU clifton next year let me know! xx

    Well there's what they call a "Uni-Link" bus that goes to Clifton from City and City from Clifton and I think operations end at 12? I'm not pretty sure as I'm based in the City Campus...

    My boyfriend is studying Chinese and Global studies at Clifton and he absolutely loves it! Lots to do on campus and its not a long bus journey into Nottingham itself, I went to stay with him for a while on campus and I loved it too! I'm also applying there for History next year !

    It is absolutely fine, i started there this september, live practically on campus, and getting to the city is simple and quick Mon-Fri you can get the uni-link bus from literally on the campus (has its own bus stop) every 10-15 mins, on sat/sun you can just walk less than two minutes to the main road bus stop and grab any bus that goes past, journey into city centre takes 20 mins tops. Tis awesomesauce

    I'm a current fresher living on campus in clifton and it's really not all bad getting into town for a night out or anything else as there's always a bus somewhere you can catch (there is one that runs all night called the skylink that stops just outside which you can get from the city for those who won't want to share a taxi home). Also many nights may just end at the point (mainly fridays) so you won't be needing the travel all the time.

    As Frankio stated, you'll spend some nights at the point (He also forgot £1 a pint Thursdays, damn you Frankio!!!) I only really go out in town on Wednesday's and maybe one other night, I just get an all day bus pass which is £3.40 and lasts until 4:30am and as Frankio stated, the skylink bus gets you outside the campus.

    Also, M block rocks, right Frankio?

    theres two different halls on clifton campus: "new halls" + "peverell". NH is very new and modern with a bit more space... but P is cheaper and still quite nice. Tbh the bedrooms dont have much difference, its mostly like the kitchens in NH are bigger

    ah right, but still, languages are hard! yeah should be a good course.. I havent firmed yet because im still waiting on the uni of nottingham to get back to me, so i am only going to reply to offers once i have all of mine back. Also, I want to go to BCU for an open day before deciding which to have as an insurance or not
