University College Nottingham

Each of the University's five faculties is comprised of a number of schools, departments, divisions or institutes. This structure provides a strategic grouping of related academic disciplines. It also ensures that the management and administration of academic life runs efficiently.

Whilst strategic decisions, such as changes in regulations, are made at faculty level, day-to-day academic activity takes place at the level of school or department. Students will find that it is these units that organise open days, issue handbooks and organise timetables and exam boards.

Introduction

Studying at Nottingham is an experience that goes far beyond traditional lectures.  A flexible approach to teaching combines established teaching methods, such as tutorials, with interactive and web-based methods.  Facilities from lecture theatres to laboratories are continually modernised and upgraded to provide the very best in up-to-date teaching facilities.

The University's modular course system provides a flexible range of self-contained study units which allows students to study the combination of subjects that suits them best.  Each student is allocated their own personal tutor to help with personal and academic issues.  A taste of the 'real world' is provided on many degree courses through presentations and lectures from visiting speakers from industry.

The University's flexible philosophy encourages students to graduate with skills that will enhance their academic abilities.  The Personal and Academic Records system enables students to develop a range of skills through independent study and extra-curricular activities, with a record of achievements to add to their curriculum vitae on graduation.

Nottingham's founder member status of Universitas 21 and its involvement with the Socrates-Erasmus Programme means that students can take advantage of many opportunities to live, study and travel overseas, broadening their experience and improving their language skills.

The University prides itself on its achievements in attracting students from 'non-traditional' backgrounds.  A recent report by the Sutton Trust has found that the University's widening participation initiatives are working well, with the number of such entrants increasing by almost 50% between 1997 and 2002.  Nottingham is also shown to be among the universities with the lowest drop-out rate.

There is a wide range of support for students to help them make the most from their time at Nottingham.  Student Services provide a range of specialist services including disability support, study support, dyslexia support and financial support.  There is also a confidential counselling service and a student advice centre.

Academic life is easily balanced with day-to-day needs with a range of facilities from the day nursery and Cripps Health Centre to the chapel, Muslim prayer rooms and multi-faith quiet room.

International Students will find additional support for the issues they face through the International Office. The Welcome Programme runs just before the academic year begins and provides a programme of activities to help international students settle in to university life.  The Students' Union provides additional support through their International Studen

International Students

The University of Nottingham is a popular choice for international students, with over 6,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students from over 130 different countries.  The University is committed to providing the best possible support to all international students from their first enquiry, to their arrival at Nottingham, and through their entire time here.

The International Office is the first point of contact for international students.  A dedicated team of staff can advise on a whole range of issues from eligibility for courses, to the application process, to the practicalities of getting to and living in the UK.  A key point in the international students' calendar is the Welcome Week, organised by the International Office, to help students settle in and find their way around the University's many resources.

In addition to the services provided by the International Office, international students can also access other student support such as the Centre for English Language Education which runs courses to help students improve their English skills and Academic Support which helps students develop their academic and writing skills.  The International Office will also provide information about how international students can access services such as healthcare, childcare and banking.

International students will also find a warm welcome from the student body.  The International Students' Bureau provides many social activities and organises the annual International Evening, a night of music, drama and dance which brings the whole of the university community together.  The Students' Union has over 150 different clubs and societies, many of which are focused on particular national or cultural groups, which all add to the range of opportunities to make new friends.
