The campus was stunning and lecturers friendly, I can see why the University of Nottingham is rated so well. However, my own personal experience was hindered due to Covid. Overall I think my department handled it well but the social and in-person aspect of uni lacked.View more
The university of Nottingham is a fantastic Russell Group university. Even speaking objectively, the university has a reputation for academic excellence; accordingly, it is ranked 66 in the world and 10 in the UK for employability according to QS 2022 rankings.
In my experience, I can see why this is the case! I can only speak for the Faculty of Arts, but the staff are great and the content they teach is generally very interesting. The lectures are well prepared, and the powerpoint slides are always provided to students – many lecturers also record their lectures for those that can’t attend. Reading lists for each module are comprehensive, with core readings, recommended readings, and further readings available, alongside many other online resources to help with your studies.
My biggest piece of advice is to take full advantage of what is available to you, especially the brains of your professors! They are there to help and will happily meet with you to discuss your work; they have always been quick to respond to my own queries on email and friendly and helpful in person.
As is to be expected at uni, you will not be spoon fed. While I stand-by the fact that the lectures here are interesting, you are expected to go above and beyond with your reading and research. Sometimes the lectures may not even have any relevance to the assignments; do not make the mistake of thinking the lecture materials are all you need for your courseworks. In my first year a professor reminded me that I am meant to be a full-time student, which means I need to study like one! This means at least a few hours of work outside of lectures or seminars a day – of course in first year this isn’t as necessary but in second and third year I would try to take this advice on board if you want to do well.
In relation to lectures and university staff, be aware that there are a lot of strikes ongoing, and so lots of teaching and some assignments are likely to be impacted. This seems to be a nationwide issue, but staff in the Faculty of Arts here often partake in the strikes.
Nottingham is a super sporty university! There are a huge number of sports and societies to get involved with, make sure you go to the freshers fair to check out all your options and sign up to trial anything that might interest you. Don’t overlook the importance of these as a source of entertainment and places to meet new people.
However, I will say is that there is a big drinking culture that is especially evident in sports teams so if that doesn’t appeal to you then its something to be wary of. As far as I can tell though, this isn’t limited just to UON, and many big universities have this culture.
Furthermore, uni sports are pretty expensive. If you are part of a team you will have to pay a membership subscription, some sports require you to have a sports village pass, and will have to pay for kits/uniform. Even when trying new sports or wanting to play for fun instead of for competition, you will have to pay £5-10 per session.
at the moment, only catered halls are available on campus, with self-catered halls being a little more further out, although all are within a reasonable distance. If I could repeat first year, I would pick one of the catered halls – I think the shared dining halls encourage more social interaction, the fantastic facilities on campus are much more easily accessible, and of course there is the added bonus of not having to cook or clean up!
Finally, the surrounding areas are lovely. The main campus is absolutely gorgeous and green, with tons of wildlife. Keep an eye out for the bunnies! There are free hopper buses between University park, Jubilee and Sutton Bonnington. Beeston and Lenton in particular have wonderful student communities, where most students will live in their second and third years, but the city as a whole feels very student-oriented given the presence of two huge universities.View more
Lecturers always willing to help you out and the department is great. Even during covid they really cared about the students. One improvement I would definitely say is having more teacher student reviews where student can review lecturers teaching stylesView more
This first year at the University of Nottingham has been amazing. Campus life is so inclusive and makes it easy for first years to bond with one another. Lecturers on the whole, in the Arts, tend to be engaging which makes it easy to absorb information. Moreover, UoN made the transition between A Levels and University work almost seamless. However, night life is at the epicentre of social life at the University. Drinking and going out multiple times a week tends to be the norm, and therefore if that is not your interest, UoN can be quite isolating.View more
As a recent graduate of the University of Nottingham, studying Electronic and Computer Engineering, I can confidently say that my experience at this institution was both challenging and rewarding. Throughout my time here, I encountered numerous opportunities for personal and academic growth, and I am pleased to share my thoughts on the university.
First and foremost, the academic curriculum in the Electronic and Computer Engineering program was comprehensive and up-to-date with the latest industry trends. The courses were well-structured, and the faculty members were knowledgeable and supportive. They were always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that we understood the material and were engaged in our learning. The university’s commitment to providing cutting-edge technology and research facilities greatly enriched our learning experience.
One aspect that I particularly liked about the University of Nottingham was the strong emphasis on practical applications. The program incorporated several hands-on projects and real-world challenges that allowed us to apply the theoretical concepts we learned in class. These experiences not only enhanced our technical skills but also prepared us for the demands of the industry. Moreover, the university’s connections with industry partners provided us with valuable internship and job opportunities, giving us a head start in our careers.
The campus life at the University of Nottingham was vibrant and diverse. There were numerous clubs, societies, and events that catered to various interests, allowing students to engage in extracurricular activities beyond their academic pursuits. This aspect not only helped in forming strong friendships but also contributed to personal growth and development.
As for the city itself, Nottingham offers a perfect balance between a lively student atmosphere and a rich cultural heritage. The city’s historical landmarks, green spaces, and a wide range of restaurants and entertainment venues ensured that there was always something to do during leisure time.
Despite the positive aspects, there were a few areas that I felt could be improved. The workload in certain modules occasionally felt overwhelming, and I believe that providing more flexibility in the scheduling of assignments and projects could ease the burden on students.
Additionally, while the university’s support services were generally helpful, I think they could be more readily accessible during peak times, especially when students were facing high-stress situations, such as exam periods or project deadlines.
Overall, my experience at the University of Nottingham was fulfilling, and I would highly recommend it to prospective students considering pursuing Electronic and Computer Engineering. The institution’s commitment to academic excellence, practical learning, and fostering a diverse and inclusive community makes it a fantastic place to study and grow both academically and personally. If you are passionate about technology and engineering and are looking for a university that offers a well-rounded experience, the University of Nottingham should undoubtedly be at the top of your list.View more
The British and female Chinese teachers and staff are very nice.💗Other than that some Malaysian teachers and staffs are very not helpful and friendly. Not replying emails and not providing enough informations for new and international students.View more
Nottingham University’s Animal Science course is well-structured with excellent professors. The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science provides state-of-the-art facilities for practical experience. Although the cost of living can be high, the University offers scholarships and bursaries to offset costs. Overall, I highly recommend Nottingham University to anyone interested in studying Animal Science.View more
