University of Nottingham
Location: Nottingham
Year established: 1881
Student population: 33,200 (8,900 international students)
The University of Nottingham is a global university with “internationalisation” at the heart of all of its activities. It was one of the founding members of Universities 21 (U21), the leading international network of research-intensive universities.
The University of Nottingham’s campuses have won awards and it was one of the first to encourage students from Asia. It has even set up small campuses in Malaysia and China. Among its most famous alumni are the writer D.H. Lawrence, the current Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak and microbiologist Milton Wainwright.
Unique Characteristics
With links to esteemed law schools worldwide, the University of Nottingham’s Law School has 50 full-time academic staff and a student population of around 1,000 in its undergraduate and postgraduate study programs. Ranked 4th in the country in The Times and Sunday Times University Guide of 2015, the law school is located on the beautiful 320 acre University Park Campus.
Whether fact or fiction, Nottingham will always be associated with Robin Hood and his band of “merry men.” But Nottingham is an easy place to make merry. It is a dynamic county capital with a range of historical sights and a buzzing music and club scene, thanks to its large student population. It is around two hours from London by train.
