Guide future generations...

Imagine an aspiring teacher, doctor or engineer that misses out on a university education at Nottingham because they can’t afford the rising costs of higher education. You have the power to prevent this from happening by remembering Nottingham in your will.

Over many decades, gifts in wills have enabled students from low-income backgrounds to study at the University of Nottingham. They have been especially critical during the cost-of-living crisis, providing vital funding for students who might otherwise have had to give up on their dreams.

By remembering Nottingham in your will, you could help fund scholarships or give financial hardship assistance to students in urgent need. You could give bright and determined students the opportunity of a university education, enable them to flourish and succeed, and change their lives forever.

Leaving even 1% - after you have taken care of those closest to you – can make a life-changing difference to the next generation of Nottingham students.

Guide vital research...

Your gift in your will can help guide groundbreaking research that will help shape the future for your family and loved ones. Nottingham has a long history of world-changing innovation in medical research, from the development of MRI, to leading research on antimicrobial resistance, to life-changing work in our cancer research centres

You can play your part in helping build a better, more sustainable world for future generations.
