Much of your study at Nottingham will be organised on an individual basis and you will ultimately gain a qualification that reflects your individual achievements in the modules you take. However, the ability to work collaboratively and in teams or groups is a highly prized attribute valued by employers. Therefore, formal and organised team working is part of most undergraduate and taught Masters programmes at the University of Nottingham. There are also many informal opportunities to work collaboratively during your studies on tasks that aren't specifically based around group work. In both formal and informal situations there are enormous benefits that can be gained from learning how to work efficiently with your peers.

"When it comes to studying with other people, maybe more informally, did you find it beneficial to form study groups or were you more solo?"
"... The theoretical questions are really helpful to do in groups ...
Effective team-working requires the development of a wide range of personal skills such as:
Peer groups and meeting people
You work in groups in the lab and you have tutorial groups and small sets of 5 or 6 and that means that you develop 3 or 4 people in the department and you do everything together ...
Studying alone and with others (finding your own study group)
"Do you prefer studying on your own or with other people?"
"I quite like having a bit of a balance. I think it's a good idea to get a group together to share ideas ..."
