It is a great university, especially the world class tutors who are extremely professional and personable. There is an atmosphere to the university, created by the beautiful campus and buildings and the people who populate campus and strive for excellence.

Overall, the university is not a bad university. The issue I find is that since UoN takes on so many students per year, there seems to be a lack of sense of one student body. Furthermore, there seems to be a lack of education as to what it is that we can do with our degrees once having graduated. The facilities are 10/10 on the other hand. The negative here is that the business school has its own campus, yet is partially integrated for examination with university park, all of which doesnt make sense to me.

Been here 2 years doing biology, great campus, all the facilities you could ever need. Always loads going on at the SU, careers service in my opinion isn't great. Doesn't give help with internships much unless you're doing economics or engineering. Some modules aren't organised and communication across departments and student services could use work.

The Campus is very spacious with an amazing and affordable gym which includes great equipment and courts. The subject tutors are helpful and the lectures are insightful. The nightlife has lots to offer and the inclusivity of the LGBT community is great. Very happy with the Uni so far.

Organised university which has a nice, relaxing campus. Easy to get around but also tiring as it is quite hilly. Student services always helpful and loads of career events on campus. Food options on campus are quite expensive and campus is not near town centre, but hopper buses and public transport is great.

Amazing experience. The tutors are so helpful and a great student service centre for when you need help with admin stuff etc.

First off, the campus is beautiful and amazing to walk around after lectures or a break. The lake is my favorite place to go to after a tough day. Overall the staff is really helpful and genuinely care for the students. Most lecturers have been great so far too. The student Union is very active and I constantly see them making new changes and efforts to see what they can improve on. There's sooo mnay societies and sports clubs to chose from, not to mention the new sports village is the best. Nottingham isn't a big city but there's a lot of opportunities if you look for them.

The campuses are gorgeous - one of the biggest and greenest universities out there. Along with the size comes some great facilities, such as gyms, great lecture spaces and so many libraries.

I go to the UoN, and study Graduate Entry Nursing, so a masters in Children's Nursing. I have to say the lectures seem great, apart from the course is very much this is what not to do, and very little this is what you should do. The campus is easy to navigate around. And there are plenty of opportunities on placements at different hospitals throughout Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

I am a chemical engineering student at the university of Nottingham. My department is on the main university park campus and the campus is really lovely, with a nice park and lake and grounds. The engineering facilities are too notch, with labs and lecture halls and libraries. The course prepares you 100% for industry with group design work from day 1 .Student union has good variety of food and shops. UoN is also the number one university for sport, with a state of the art gym both for the average person and for high performance athletes, and has a lot of engage programs for people of all abilities.

Green University with great view! Nice hall and very decent chinese, african, and italian food. Did I mention we have starbucks? I write library blogs for the uni and djanogly learning centre has the best views. If you need a private room tho, George green it is!

i don't utilise a lot of facilities but I'm sure they're good eg sports. I do physics and don't really get involved in much outside of uni. Lecturers are nice though. Physics Building is alright I guess could be better or as nice as the buildings on other side of campus but we get George green and that's a great library. Apart from the fact that the arts and humanities students come and take over it and there's never any space any more.

Fantastic teaching quality, the QMC and university park campus have everything you can need. However, I'm currently over in derby at the royal derby school of medicine and it doesn't feel like you are part of the university at all. Nowhere near the level of support I'd received previously on my masters. But if you're at the Nottingham campuses then it's a fantastic city and university

Campus university opposed to city; big and good facilities in the main but coming from London, it's the state of the city of Nottingham I detest: very roadman and few amenities. Public transport exists but is a pain compared to London. Tram to anywhere costs £5 return which is almost as much as zone 1 peak time return with an Oyster card in London! But apart from that, good lectures and mostly engaging seminars.

Absolutely class, since coming to Nottingham I have enjoyed my time here thoroughly. The people are nice, the facilities are fantastic and the city is quality.

It is a very welcoming university, student friendly and enjoyable. There's loads of activities, both career oriented and also extra curricular activities for all kinds of students, be it introverted or extroverted. There's a great concern for safety of students like no other university, even for night outs or other individual student activities.

Good location, brilliantly maintained campus with excellent maths and sports facilities. The student union also provides lots of extra curricular activities to get involved in

Beautiful campus, but personally I find it too big. On campus halls are all catered which is a turn off as the food is trash. However the university has a lot of money, which is reflected in the maintenance of buildings, and quality of courses.

Notts has a beautiful campus with great sports and educational facilities. As a medical student, we are close to QMC and hopper buses get us to the other hospitals if we need it.

Beautifully green campus which is large and has many services including a food hub and bank. English Lit with Creative Writing course is very academically challenging while exciting and relevant. Only issues so far include timetabling as all hours are clustered together on Monday and Tuesday creating an overworked start to the week but no uni time for the final three days. This has been more evened out for next semester however.

Campus is huge with 4 different campus sites to cater all type of courses and students. Great sports facilities at the largest sport complex. With a vast variety of people, students are friendly and le lecturers are helpful and nice. Transportation is convenient and accessible plus, free transportation between campuses.

The university consists of 2 main large campuses just outside of the city centre and 2 other campuses for specific agricultural and animal related degrees. All linked by free, regular hopper busses. The campuses are large and offer many facilities you'd expect. The sports facilities are professional level, social areas are well equipped for all needs and libraries large enough to meet space requirements. The halls of residence are within easy reach of these essential facilities in both main campuses and even accommodate this needs within the halls themselves. The chemistry department always has all the latest facilities and systems allowing us to keep up with times and never feeling stuck to think we're at any disadvantages at all. The student union is impressive with its assistance for students in careers, studies and wellbeing. However events run could be broadened to bring in more types of students as events are usually pub quizzes or small socials. The careers service is brilliant. Year long support and opportunities. However, only useful to those who seek it out unless a course forces it and keeps it as compulsory modules. The organisation is alround 5 star as it never ceases to impress any stydent.
