Nottingham Trent is split between three sites: the city, Clifton and Brackenhurst. Nottingham Trent is the city’s former polytechnic created out of the local colleges in the area, the oldest of which dates back to 1843. Nottingham Trent University boasts a good employability record and a good return for your money with modern facilities and more than 6,000 business links. There is an international student support service and orientation guide for newcomers as well as an ‘ask a student’ service.

The University of Nottingham opened in 1881 thanks to a grant from an anonymous patron. The main campus, University Park, was created with provision for recreation for the surrounding community, which remains to this day. Visiting speakers have included Albert Einstein, Mahatma Ghandi and H G Wells.

The University of Nottingham has continued expanding to sites all over the urban area and indeed the world, with campuses in Malaysia and China. In total 30,000 students from more than 150 countries study at the University of Nottingham. There are welfare, guidance and financial support services for international students as well as a buddying up scheme to connect prospective students with attendees from their countries.
