    Highly recommended as Nottingham is such a great city, surrounded by lovely greenery. The university is also extremely huge!

    I think the Uni is one of the best in the UK. Taking into account what the city has to offer and the provisions made by the university, staff enthusiasm and a focus on students needs, I am very happy I chose this uni over others.
