    I've seen Bangor graduates get management jobs at GSK. Things aren't all what they seem.

    Nottingham's Innovation Park seems to be attracting top science and engineering businesses to set themselves up there. When the park is finally complete, surely it will be the most advanced of it's kind in the world. I doubt if there is any university that can compete with Nottingham for assets and investment at present. Gradually becoming the first ''Super University''.

    Nottingham is developing new sites and projects left right and centre, and with the CEO of GSK as their Chancellor, they are simply leaving everyone else behind. Only Manchester, UCL and Imperial have plans to match Nottingham's spending on developments in the UK.

    How flexible and tolerant is Nottingham in changing courses in the first few weeks of an academic year?

    Was thinking of changing from Computer Science to Chemistry perhaps?

    A New World Order of universities, integrating the World's best businesses on campus, and building developments overseas to spread their power across the World. This is just the start, Nottingham will have a footprint in every continent in the future, they have recently entered the USA with a partnership with Birmingham. They are running the university like an entrepreneurial institutional empire, doing things that others can only dream of, and building more income streams in order to be self sufficient and challenge the cash-rich Ivy league universities in coming years.

    Without more funding, minnows Durham and St Andrews are in trouble in future years.

    Is there a danger Nottingham could be getting too big and powerful across the globe? Certainly if they built another two campuses elsewhere, they would have a monopoly developing.

    It may have been given a Royal Charter post WW2 but it's been awarding degrees since the 19th century.

    Also Ningbo is a city which is only slightly smaller than London which exceptional trade links. It also is home to one of the world's busiest ports.
    Furthermore I'll forget how outdated your country categorisation is, however Malaysia has the world's 29th largest economy with a GDP growing at a rate of 6.5% a year until 2005.

    If you're going to insult the university at least use facts.

    Given that a monopoly is defined as having 25% of the market share, another couple of campuses aren't going to do that, given there's over 22,000 institutes of higher education.

    I think Nottingham is a lovely university and additional campuses, particularly in America or Europe would help in a plethora of ways. I don't think it's a super powered force of dominating the universe.
