I know that you should apply for the courses and not the repuatation but I can't help wondering what people think of Nottingham, is it seen as really good? Or just okay?

It really depends on what course you're doing. Overall it is still a top 25 UK University, and last year was top 20. In areas such as Chemistry, however, it's regarded one of the best universities in the country. The campus is quite beautiful, and fairly large.

As for the city itself, people give it an unfair reputation. It's no worse than any other city for crime, and you're not likely to be a victim to crime if you take the necessary precautions. There's greenery and all the shops you could want.

If someone who cannot spell prestigious is going to attend there, then it is not prestigious enough!

It's ranked as the number one UK uni for the top employers to find graduate recruits (http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/news/pre...employers.aspx) so, yes, it's very prestigious.

It depends on the subject. For Law, Economics and English among others it is very highly respected. But if someone does Sociology there then no one cares. Same for the majority of RG unis.

I would chop off my right arm to go to the University of Nottingham. Not really obviously but I would love be able to go there but my grades aren't good enough

Not because you cannot get into Nottingham makes it prestigious.

Nottingham is quite prestigious by UK standards. About the same as York, Manchester and Glasgow. Used to be up there with Warwick and Durham in the 90s, before the expansion kind of diluted quality for quantity. Government budget cuts forced their hand to expand I think. Probably will never see it again in the top 10 in UK rankings due to it's sheer size.

To be honest. is very good but not elite (assuming elite is Oxbridge, Imperial, LSE, very good is Durham, Bristol, KCL, Manc, Good is Sheffield, Birmingham, Liverpool). As some have alluded to, in the 90s it was a solid top 10 university. Expansion has diluted the overall quality but there are many, many top students in the campus.

In terms of careers though I think it outperforms half of the russel groups, very good for corporate law, engineering, accounting etc. reasonable for things like investment banking.
