The university made the adjustment effortless, with the support they have provided. The knowledge I have gained here has been invaluable. I highly recommend the course to anyone interested in the field who would love a challenge while also enjoying one of the most beautiful university campuses in England.

The university offers an excellent support structure for international students, offering advice and support on a wide range of issues, including scholarships, funding, visas, accommodation, travel and health matters.

Welcome programme

The university runs a Welcome programme prior to the start of the term in September each year. This gives international students a chance to meet fellow students and to settle in Nottingham prior to the start of their studies.

Meet our staff

We have agents in many countries and representatives regularly visit higher education fairs and exhibitions all over the world. This offers an opportunity for potential students to meet staff from the university and to find out more about study opportunities.


Maria Florencia BuccariBeing selected as a Chevening Scholar and having the possibility of living in the UK and completing my masters degree is an experience that will undoubtedly change my life forever.

In the time I have been in Nottingham, I was able to become a part of the prestigious School of Economics and expand my knowledge.

I have also expanded my network, meeting incredible people with different backgrounds and engaging in fruitful discussions about economics and development issues. Moreover, I made lifelong friends!  

The university and its international atmosphere made me feel at home right away. I would encourage any students to apply for the Chevening Scholarship and the University of Nottingham and become a part of the Green and Gold community.
