“Nottingham has one of the best transport systems with frequent tram facilities and NCT buses. There's plenty to do and everything is within close proximity whether you are looking for a chilled day or a wild night out. I am especially fond of the amount of restaurants we have to choose from. My personal favorites being Annie's Burger Shack, Zaap Thai and The Pudding Pantry.”

Pragati Bhandari, Legal Practice

“Nottingham is a vibrant and student-friendly city that boasts great culture, nightlife and sports a fantastic history. You will never get bored with plentiful amenities within easy reach and make great friends along the way, whilst being part of a 60,000 strong community of students.”

Oliver Hazell, Property Finance and Investment

“Nottingham is a multicultural city with a lot to offer, this includes an incredibly rich history, fun spots and much more. It is the perfect city for students to experience their university career.”

“Nottingham is a great city to be a part of, especially as a student. There is so much to do whether it's going out with friends in the evening to bars and restaurants or going out in the daytime and exploring the city from the Nottingham Castle grounds to the vibrant Market Square.”
