Any questions about Sutton Bonington campus?Watch
Do you ever feel really cut off, or is it fairly easy to go into Nottingham when you feel like it? When I first went there for the open day I was really hesitant about it being so isolated, but when I went back for my interview, the students I spoke to said they never felt like they needed to go into Nottingham that often, which reassured me a bit. I think I'm mostly concerned about the fact that you are with a much smaller group of people, whereas in city unis you have the opportunity to meet so many more people.
It can, however be a huge hassle to go out at night. It's do able, but costly, or you have like an 11-12 pm "curfew" with the buses/ trams. That said, I drink with my flatmates/friends in my building and have saved a lot of money from that, so I have plenty of money if I do choose to go party in town.
This campus has quite a lot people on it, really; it's pretty easy to make friends, especially as you all eat together. That said you can join societies on UP to make a wider range of friends, which is useful if you wanna stay in Nottingham centre at night.
