GO Universities in Nottingham

Universities in Nottingham Nottingham is home to two top class universities, a buzzing nightlife and great shops, so it’s no wonder it has a reputation for being a student-friendly city.

Founded in 1948, the University of Nottingham [map] was the first new university to be created in Britain after World War I. It emerged out of the University College, which had been established in the city in 1881, and over the past 50 years it has become one of the country's leading research and teaching universities.

The university has played host to numerous important developments during its short history, including the opening of the first Medical School in Britain since Victorian times. This has undoubtedly led to some major achievements over the years, most recently, in 2003, the Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to academic, Sir Peter Mansfield, in recognition of his work in Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

But the University of Nottingham does not limit itself to teaching within the city; it also has a campus in China and plans to open one in Malaysia in 2005.

The city’s other university is Nottingham Trent [map], which has two large self-contained campuses where students learn, socialise and live.

Founded in 1992 from the old Trent Polytechnic Nottingham, the university has won a number of awards for its commitment to research, including a 5 Grade in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise.

Nottingham Trent has 12,570 full time, 5,830 part time and 5,976 sandwich course students, studying a wide range of subjects including Broadcast Journalism, English and Science.
