Nottingham gets the balance just right with regard to location and culture. The campus is beautiful, spacious and enjoyable to be on, whilst the city has endless things to do. There are some areas, particularly science, where the buildings are slightly older and less attractive, but the actual facilities within them are good. The new David Ross Sports Center is amazing! The nightlife is amazing, with a huge range of nights to suit your preferences, as well as loads of restaurants and cafes for the day, and other activities such as watching ice-hockey matches, mini golf, bounce and escape rooms. The teaching quality at the University is outstanding, evidenced by the Gold level Teaching Award obtained by the University last year. I personally study law and my lecturers are leading experts or at the very least highly regarded academics, most of whom have been in practice for a number of years. Tutorials consist of small groups which heightens the level of engagement and understanding, and all professors within the school are available and willing to meet to talk through any issues we do not understand. The Student Union is also very good, with enthusiastic officers each year who are constantly improving what the University can offer. There are a vast range of societies and anyone can create a new society, which will be vetted by other student society presidents rather than staff at the University. The student voice is certainly heard. Practically, living accommodation is so cheap! You can get a very nice and sizeable house for £80 per week. The career services are outstanding and I personally have had very good experiences when meeting my careers advisor. Their advice really does make a difference and it was these meetings which changed by approach to applications and resulted in my graduate job offer. Overall its fab!
