Having completed my Degree at Trent and MA at UoN its quite ironic that Trent being considered the 'inferior' University was so much better. In nearly every department Trent trumped Uni of except perhaps facilities which is exceptional at Uni of due to the sheer amount of space the campus holds. UoN's assessment and administration skills are absolutely shocking, with the length of time to mark and return assessment beyond a joke. Furthermore, the IT set up in terms of the online portal 'Moodle' is slow and cumbersome compared to Trent's 'NOW'. If you are a student at UoN and want help from Student Services simply do not bother and attempt to resolve it yourself. Comparatively speaking, the Student Services team at Trent is quick, reliable and to the point where at UoN they are indecisive and lack urgency. I can not express to you how poor the organisational skills at UoN is, considering it is supposed to be in the top 100 globally.
Unbelievable campuses, very good students union and career services are second to none. Nottingham is an great city (though there are parts you should avoid) and Uni of’s situation around 15 minutes bus from the centre of town makes its serenity ideal, with bus links directly into the centre of town easily accessible. The schools for economics and politics (as this is what I know) make every effort to nurture free thought and help advance study, rather than simply indoctrinating students as can be the case at some universities, whilst there are plenty of societies in both academic fields and beyond (eg amazing sports societies) for those looking for something more extra-curricular than drinking. On the topic of nightlife though, Nottingham as a city has a lot more to offer than one might think. For a city that is often eclipsed by the likes of Bristol or Leeds, I’d preach that you don’t have to end up at Ocean (the home of cheese) or Crisis (Uni of Social night) to enjoy yourself..
If you’re looking for a uni with the full package: education, sport/hobbies and social then this is the one of you. The campus is very green and and the facilities are maintained to a high standard. Only gripe is the distance between campus’ and to get to certain sports clubs (eg. Athletics & rowing) but if you happy to ride a bike - no problem!
The University of Nottingham has by far the best campus in the UK and is the perfect place for a first year student to settle down as everything is easy to get to and the city’s centre is only a short bus ride away. There is nothing bad to say about the campus, especially in the summer with the boating lake, mini golf and numerous campus bars that make it such an enjoyable place to be.
The University of Nottingham has a beautiful campus, excellent staff and a vibrant student community. Teaching at the university is of the highest quality, with staff being both knowledgeable and engaging. I cannot recommend the University of Nottingham highly enough. I have had a wonderful three years in Nottingham and only wish I could do three more....
University of Nottingham is brilliant all round except for maybe the students union. The student union bar serves good reasonably priced food but the drinks are limited to cheap brands and are priced almost the same as many pubs and bars in the area so there’s no saving. It also lacks a student union club when Nottingham Trent has a very good student union club. The Campus is beautiful and very green in most parts (and that’s coming from someone who lives in the beautiful countryside of Devon). It’s also home to all sorts of wildlife. The clubs and societies are endless and mostly very well run. There are a huge variety of things to get involved in. The campus wifi has great coverage but can be a little slow at times.
I think University of Nottingham is a beautiful place to study, especially in the Humanities Department. My tutor is lovely aswell as my welfare officer! The grounds are stunning on hot days and it’s the best choice I made city wise
So pleased I came here! This uni is something really special. Not perfect by any means (I think it probably varies course-wise — mine are pretty naff with communicating certain things) but the community here is like no other. Notts I love you!
I have had the best time of my life at this university. There is so much to get involved in, something for everyone. The campus is beautiful, there are many contact hours and loads of opportunities to learn about research and postgrad education. Would be better if the student bar was cheaper. The placement team for pharmacy are extremely unhelpful. Need more funding to get to and from placements. Need better notes given out because the handouts rip very easily in the current form.
As soon as you walk onto Uni of Notts campus you’ll be struck by the vast amount of greenery and gardens that are around you. Then over the course of the year it will start to f*** you off because it turns out maintenance is all the uni will happily spend their bastard money on. This uni decided to spend £1 million on a new set of steps and a water feature but refuses to pay lecturers the wage they deserve. Also, if you are going to this uni make sure it is for an academic subject such as Law or Chemistry, they offer courses in subjects such as Film and Television studies that cost £15k/ year and turn out to be watching 1 film a week then attending a seminar to talk about it. I dropped out after the first year. Would not recommend this uni for someone who wants to have a good night life experience either. Nottingham is an amazing city with tonnes that will appeal to a wide range of people, except the goobers that attend this uni. The night life at uni of is S***. All in all, toss uni.
Good experience this year. Staff on the whole have been lovely. Sporting and library facilities brilliant. Societies have been difficult as I’m a nursing student and being on placements means it’s hard to make weekly commitments.
Eduroam is terrible, couldn't connect for weeks then suddenly worked again. The student union is alright but the pints are way too expensive. The campus facilities are pretty dated and there aren't many resources to go around.
Such a great University! Everyone is so nice and welcoming; lecturers as well as course collegues! A lot of career opportunities including interviews, career talks, internships and many more! Every course is unique and very specialised! I’m currebtly doing a degree in Finance, Accouting and Management and it’s amazing! They do not only teach you what you need for your future job, but also helo to get a better understanding of a business world in overall (on my course). Definitely highly reccommended!
I had the opportunity to get involved with rowing very competitively for my first 2 years, then had many other sports to choose from when I left. Incredible facilities, an amazing campus that is continuously being developed. The SU was visibly making a difference all the time
I’m sooo in love with my uni: I could not possibly imagine better student experience. My department (Maths) provides outstanding support to students, in particular on their first year, to ensure smooth transaction from school to university. It offers a lot of opportunities for self-development, such as summer research projects, review projects and peer assisted study support scheme. The SU provides a lot of support in terms of self-development (career service, internship schemes, training, volunteering, etc.) and is very diverse: there are 200+ different societies and 70+ sports. The facilities are absolutely outstanding, and the campus is the most beautiful university campus I have seen in my life. I would definitely recommend visiting the University of Nottingham, because once you see and feel it for yourself, you cannot forget such an amazing experience!
Great education as most the lecturers I've been to have been informing as well as entertaining and most lectures are recorded. The campus itself is huge and very pretty and there's lots of hidden places to explore. The city itself is very convient cheap travel and nights out are known here for being one of the best. There are many societies to choose from but you must choose wisely as some area more active than others. The social atmosphere is great as you'll always find people that will like you or who you are as most people here are very friendly. I haven't really had any problems with the Wi-Fi here as the campus has free WiFi all over so it's great to save data. The libraries in this uni are ideal as during exam time they go into 24/7 and there specific zones so if you want to study in silent that can happen. Theres a monitor of how full each floor is so you don't waste your time trying to find seats as there's other places to study. Food here is great; such a range.
University of Nottingham is a fantastic centre for further education. There are so many opportunities for students to further their studies as one of the worlds best research universities. While also getting involved in hundreds of different societies, not to mention their fantastic record at sport.
Doing a Masters at this uni. Obviously, I don't expect to be spoon fed at level 7. But the majority of the lecturers are unhelpful, taking ages to reply to emails or to simply not reply at all! Some of them overcomplicate everything to the point where you have to go to a different lecturer who explains the concept in a sentence, rather than going around the houses. Plus, the workload expected from each lecturer is different, even on the same module. Sometimes, you have to do an overbearing amount of prep and other times none at all. Along with all this, the admin side of things is terrible! They lost one of my feedback coursework, they missed me off enrolment for my THESIS MODULE (I nearly missed the information about the proposal deadline and access to the form), and the change of module process is ridiculous, leading me to miss lectures.
I hate the University of Nottingham, I’ve been here for three years and all I want is to leave. I chose to study philosophy, but I want to be a games developer. I wasted three years of my life at the University of Nottingham. Don’t study here, no one cares about you
The campus is very pretty and makes you feel very safe. There are lights everywhere and it is the kind of place where you don't feel uneasy about walking to the campus shop in the dark on your own. The internet is campus wide and is pretty good, sometimes it disconnects from your phone though and causes you to use up some data before realising.
Worst university ever. Always spam you with lots of survey and feedback forms but those forms are merely just a useless piece of paper. Administrative staffs are not helpful and lazy, sometimes not friendly. They always ask you to send them emails but never really help resolve the issues. Admission process is troublesome. Been to three campuses, Malaysia campus is the worst. Location is unaccessible by public transports. Staffs are deceptive. Accommodation is even worse.
I am amazed at how organised the university is and how well it is planned out especially university park and jubilee. If your course is on sutton bonnington campus or Derby campus- you will be isolated or have to get up early to commute so i dont recomend that!
Nottingham is so lovely! The campus is absolutely gorgeous, so much green space and the lake is perfect to have a walk around after a stressful week. It's only a short tram/bus ride from the city so it's easy just to pop in for a few bits, but far enough away so it doesn't seem too overwhelming. There's so many great facilities on campus, have a look on the website, there's literally everything you could need and more!
Eduroam wifi is the same whichever uni you go to, not great. Have yet to need to use the careers service but from what I hear it's good. There's an abundance of societies and he campusnis beautiful and green, if a bit hilly and very large- running across it in 10 minutes isn't fun!
Sort of wish there was a club of sorts on campus, I've visited my friends uni's and they have one. That said, Mooch is great. Also, please can we have a Greggs or Birds or something. Costa, Starbucks and the rest of the more higher priced coffee and sandwich places can really chip away at a students bugdet. #wewantsausagerolls
New gym is amazing and the grounds don't compare to any other uni. Many of my friends I met through the massive selection of societies. The students union is great and doesn't focus solely on nights out as I know many unis do. Wifi isn't great as is always disconnecting, but ethernet connection has great speeds.
This university is an absolutely brilliant place to be. Being a campus university, the massive open spaces provides a constantly open space for you to explore, breathe and take a walk around. However, the city isn't far away, so their is always something to do. Prices for food within the university are expensive however this shouldn't put you off trying a Chinese at the top of the Portland building every once In a while
The campuses are beautiful. Resources seem to be abundant, but there is a lack of communication between professors and the student services, possibly because of their switching to a new data system. Overall, a nice university.
Brilliant university - excellent English School and gorgeous campus with great facilities. I made friends for life and my experience prepared me for a great career. All my friends have gone on to have interesting jobs from media to university management.
There are always events going on on the campuses. The SU organises fun and safe activities. Even within each school/ department, everyone is very involved and helpful. Plus the massive amount of resources available is just amazing for a student.
The uni park campus is traditional and beautiful, but some buildings look tired. The jubilee campus is modern and smaller so is more communal.There's a variety of clubs, but they can be expensive. The SU is very helpful and easy to speak to if you need any help. The internet is poor, sometimes it can take 10mins at the start of your lecture just to get online so you can load the powerpoint. Also, the hopper buses are un reliable and often too full.
Beautiful green campus, with something to discover around every corner. Buildings that are on campus are not very attractive, in particular the ones in the science park area. Student union building does not have a good location for night life/parties, hence these all occur in the city, which can be a hassle to get to if you live on campus.
Excellent student facilities and union. Mooch/The Den bars aren't particularly appealing, but the food is good and the atmosphere is always good. WiFi on campus is excellent, access in all buildings and some outside spaces. Broadgate Park WiFi (StudentCom) very poor. Graduate employment one of the best in the UK.
The best University, 100%. Such a good atmosphere, beautiful campus, great teaching staff and a wonderful city to spend three years in. Given the choice, I'd never pick another city to go to uni in or live in, and studying at UoN has been the best experience of my life.
Beautiful campus, lots of green space and excellent facilities, all in an amazing city. However, if you hate walking, it's not for you! Hopper buses help, but the campus is still a good 30 minutes walk from one end to the other.
The university has a North and South divide. The deadlines are too close together with placement as well. The university has not given us enough information about applying for nursing jobs and jobs outside of nottingham. I'm not happy that the course has not taught us enough human anatomy/biology.
