Degrees from British universities such as Nottingham are valued around the world because of our high academic standards and because our courses can help you to develop skills – such as critical thinking, analysing evidence and decision-making – as well as knowledge in your subject area.
Depending on the subject, your course will include a mixture of lectures, workshops, seminars and tutorial meetings. You will also have coursework assignments which may include essays, independent research, group projects and presentations.
You will be responsible for managing your own workload to meet coursework deadlines, planning your reading and research, and drawing conclusions from your findings. If you've never studied in the UK before, you may find this challenging at first, but you will soon get used to our academic culture.
Find out about some of the academic resources and opportunities available at Nottingham on our academic resources page, and find out about how we are managing teaching and learning safely this year.
UKCISA's website includes a useful guide to study skills for success. The British Council's free online preparation course is a great way to explore in more depth what you can expect when you live and study in the UK.
