    I also came from London to Nottingham when I studied there. The city centre has a good amount of shops and places to eat but of course it's tiny compared to what London has to offer. The campus is a short bus ride away from the centre so I think you'd be fine! From your second year onwards most will move to Lenton which is closer to the centre.

    Oh man I think Nottingham is an amazing city, I come from Bristol and I think it's great! There's quite a few clubs, even more cocktail bars and even more places to eat, it's basically one of the food capitals of England I swear, all new restaurants open there.

    Also related to uni more there's a bar on campus that a lot of people drink at if they cba to go to town but it really isn't far at all to go! The students union at UoN is HUGE and there are societies, liberation networks, sports societies for everything under the sun.

    I don't know what kind of stuff you're into / what you like most about london but if you wanna let me know I'll try think up some stuff especially for you

    The city only really has one 'centre' which is quite small (compared to the hundreds of centres in London). The shops and nightlife are adequate rather than great. However, the campus is lovely and there's lots of great countryside nearby. Lenton is a fun place to live as well, and is halfway between the centre and the campus.

    The strength of nottingham is it's campus. If this isnt important to you then its not the place to go.
