    Hey, I'm in first year at Nottingham studying Biology and living in self-catered accommodation in Broadgate Park. If you have any questions about the uni or whatever just ask. It's the best uni by far so you made a good choice applying

    I've applied, when I visited the Uni last year the faculty of engineering looked amazing. And it has some of the most interesting modules out of most courses. Have you received an offer yet?

    Hey sure i'll try:

    1. The campus is beautiful the best by far from the others I visited (bath, Warwick, Birmingham, bristol) and although that doesn't sound like an important pointer It is because you're living on campus pretty much 24/7 in first year and to have green open spaces to walk around and live in is much nicer than concrete blocks most uni are. When its sunny its beautiful.

    2. It a very well respected university, 23 in the UK rankings and the university businesses say they go to first for graduates when recruiting.

    3. Nottingham the city is one of the best for nightlife. There's a club/bar to go to for every night of the week and the majority are student nights which are often themed so fancy dress etc. So much fun.

    4. Depending on your subject all your lecturers will either be working researches at the university or have specialised in the subject along the line. Everyone of my biology lecturers work in a lab in the uni and so have first hand experience in what they're teaching you.

    5. A ridiculous amount of societies, whether you're interested in getting involved in competitive sport, pole dancing or the choir there will be a society for you and they are great places to meet new friends along with on your course and in your halls.

    Hope this helps

    I am so frustrated.. I applied last year, it's been more than 2 months since I applied. They told me before the Christmas break, that I would get a response. I didn't. Then they said I would get it by jan 15th, I didn't. Then they said I would get it now by jan 22nd. But nothing yet. What's happening?! Is anyone else in the same boat as me??

    I have applied for marketing by the way

    Did you get an email or was it first shown on the online portal?

    I don't know why they are making me wait so long! I plan on quitting my job the minute I get an offer. The wait is killing me

    Ohh well yours is a different case since I applied for undergraduate. I received an update on Track first as UCAS had email issues on the deadline day, which is when I got the offer.

    Hey I got an offer to do the biology msci Nottingham offers and right now Broadgate looks like the best bet. It seems like the best accommodation for self catered undergraduates that's closest to the biology facilities? I was tempted to try the self catered but it just doesn't sound as good, is Broadgate a nice place to live for 1st year? Would you recommend it?

    Heya.
    Well congrats on the offer its a great course.

    Yeah out of all the self-catered halls Broadgate is the best and it's a good 20 minute walk through campus to get to the life sciences department but its the biggest and i think the closest self-catered to campus. If i was starting out again I personally would choose on campus accommodation and not self-catered. I'll stress that this may not be the view of a lot of people in broadgate but I was in a flat with people i didn't really gel with initially and you're very restricted to those few people especially in the first few weeks and they are the only people you know at uni. It can also be quite isolated. Whereas in catered its very social and you'll meet nearly everyone in your hall at some point and you can pick and choose friends much easier. If you're lucky and love your flat then your time in broadgate will be great but just keep in mind that its not set out in a particularly sociable way and it's difficult to meet and integrate into other flats if you're unlucky with the people you live with. I love the fact I can choose what and when I eat but in catered its so much more sociable as you all meet up before dinner and sit together with your friends and talk about your day etc.

    I don't know if this helps but that's just my experience and my opinion.
