Teaching and learning
The University of Nottingham is keen for all students to be able to access Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in some form during their studies. This may be through their choice of modules or participating in extra-curricular activities such as Nottingham Advantage Award, volunteering or internships.
The University runs Sustainability, Society and You - an open online course available for anyone to join. It investigates sustainability from multiple angles and explores what small steps individuals can take to make a real impact upon our futures. To date over 17,000 learners have taken part in the course, with University of Nottingham students able to receive academic credits or Nottingham Advantage Award credits.
The University also offers research opportunities in the field of sustainability, both in the UK and at our overseas campuses. Our research portfolio includes projects ranging from carbon capture and storage to corporate social responsibility.
