"There are many great things about the University of Nottingham, but what I enjoy the most, and what makes this university so unique, is its campuses. I was based in University Park campus, and it is indeed a self-contained small village with all the essentials in place. This campus is a joy to explore and if you like photography, you can get some amazing shots by just walking and exploring. From the wonderful lake, to the secret gardens, the campus has wonderful scenery that will enrich your time at university."

Radu' Valeriu-Radu Andro from Romania, studying BSc Biochemistry and Genetics.
