We are here to help you adjust to life in the UK wherever in the world you are joining us from.
We understand there may be differences like the food and the weather, but we are here to guide you through life as a new student in Nottingham.
Starting a university course in the UK is an exciting new opportunity, but don't worry if you feel a little overwhelmed at first. Read on for our top tips on settling in during your first few weeks.
A degree from a British university is valued worldwide. The UK has high academic standards, and you will learn new skills including critical thinking, analysing evidence, decision making, and more.
Depending on your course you will study and learn in varied ways including lectures, seminars, workshops and meetings with your tutor. Coursework and study will include essays, research, group projects and presentations.
You will need to organise your work and complete your work on time. If you have not studied in the UK before it is normal to find this difficult at first, but you will adjust over time, and we can help you.
