    Lets have a serious discussion about this? How does it really stack up against other Unis? Is it under or overrated?

    Depends what you call elite. Some will say top 10 is elite which notts is, others say only Oxbridge, LSE, Imperial and then maybe UCL is considered elite.

    What I like about notts is that they dont give a **** whether you think it's elite or not. They keep rising up and pushing to be better, attracting employers and talent too.

    Its in an Awkward Position, going off the Complete Uni table which for some odd reason is my favorite one, its ranked 12th in the Russell group, out of 24 Unis that are supposed to represent elite, thats pretty good, but i guess the best way to answer this will be in 3 years when i graduate from Nottingham depending on what job i get 😂😂😉

    uni rankings are pretty terrible in general especially if you're looking at prestige alone. Nottingham has a pretty solid alumni and name in general for you to easily get a foot in at most employers.

    Even for super prestigious creme de la creme careers like investment banking and corporate law, notts has a pretty high number of ppl getting in considering its not a top 5. Clearly there's something about it that attracts ppl

    I will say there is a constant stream of career fairs etc occuring, obviously too early for me really take part in but it does give you some motivation. Also i feel like the lecturers are very relaxed, they expect us to work but we I havent come across a single classic snobby professor yet, im def glad i came/was allowed to come here!!
