Brunei Darussalam


I think we have one of the best campuses in the UK. We are so fortunate to have Highfield Park and Lakeside on campus always available to offer its beautiful scenery during the stressful deadline/exam period.

I also like how even though the University has thousands of students, the place and people are always so comfortable and friendly. I think this helps students easily fit in to the otherwise foreign environment.

Nottingham is a lovely city in the middle of England. Explore the city, and once you’ve exhausted it, you’re only a few hours or even minutes away from another city that you can discover. The accommodation is affordable and the standard of living is great.
