Two Top-Class Universities
While many cities have more universities on offer than Nottingham, few other locations have the quality of education offered by this East Midlands city.
For Nottingham students, they have the pick of two top-class universities:
- Nottingham Trent University
- University of Nottingham
Nottingham Trent University
Widely seen as a contemporary university after receiving university status in 1992, Nottingham Trent University has quickly become one of the most respected institutions in England.
Spread across three major campuses, a diverse population of around 25,000 students choose to study here.
The City Site campus is the primary hotspot for students and is ideally located just 15 minutes from Nottingham Station.
The other two sites, Clifton Campus and Brackenhurst Campus are also jam-packed with students and are serviced by the award-winning “Unilink” bus route.
Currently ranked in the top 50 universities in the UK, Nottingham Trent has fast become one of the most popular universities in Europe.
University of Nottingham
Undoubtedly the most prestigious university in Nottingham, Nottingham University is the fourth largest in the UK and boasts over 35,000 students.
Tracing its routes back to 1881, many famous graduates have come from this world-class institution, with D.H Lawrence and J.D Wetherspoon as part of its notable alumni.
Mainly focused on one campus spreading across 300 acres, the site is found just outside Nottingham city centre.
However, there are other campuses to consider, including the Jubilee Campus, City Hospital Campus, and the Sutton Bonnington Campus, all of which benefit from fantastic transport links.
According to the QS World University Rankings, the University of Nottingham is currently ranked 103rd in the world and 18th in the UK (higher than Birmingham and Leeds).
One of the original members of the world-class Russell Group, the University is well-known for its research subjects and is regarded as one of the best eco campuses in the world.
