Global Culture Festival - 3 to 6 May

Join us and celebrate the international culture of our Faculty across all three campuses - NottinghamChina and Malaysia.

Explore our research, enjoy some global culture and find out directly what our students think. It's not just listening - there are plenty of opportunities to join the conversation, get your voice heard and be creative.

With such a diverse range of face-to-face and online events you'll get a real flavour of the global mindset of our University and experience the Arts in many different ways.
