Nottingham is an absolutely amazing town, with the best student club ever, the Ocean. You’ll never hear the Baywatch theme the same way again. There’s a really nice student vibe, a ‘friendly’ rivalry between Nottingham U, Batman’s house, and three pubs claiming to be the oldest pub in Britain (that serve cheap pints to boot). The library is also amazing, with loads of study space, and the SU threw loads of great events, and I joined a few fantastic societies that really helped me experience all the uni had to offer.
I would strongly reccomend NTU for prospective students as the quality of the uni itself has been greatly improved by renovations across the sites, the staff are very welcoming and are all willing to help or answer any queries and finally the timetabling team try their hardest to avoid large gaps in your timetable to make it as convenient for you as possible.

I think that the uni is great. The staff are all really helpful and easily approachable. The campus itself is much improved since I visited on an open day
