News: Reap the rewards of uni­ver­si­ty study at Not­ting­ham College

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

The UCAS dead­line may have passed but you can still apply for a uni­ver­si­ty lev­el course with us, and start this Sep­tem­ber! Book your place on our High­er Edu­ca­tion Infor­ma­tion Evening on Wednes­day 18th March to find out how. 

When it comes to choos­ing where to go to uni­ver­si­ty there are lots of choic­es. For some, the idea of mov­ing cities and enter­ing a large uni­ver­si­ty can be daunt­ing and expensive.

Many stu­dents are now opt­ing to reap the ben­e­fits of stay­ing local, choos­ing to study for a uni­ver­si­ty qual­i­fi­ca­tion in a col­lege envi­ron­ment. We out­line some of the advan­tages, and how you could reap the ben­e­fits too by opt­ing to stay local and study a uni­ver­si­ty lev­el course at Not­ting­ham Col­lege.

Save Money!

Pound coins

We offer a cost-effec­tive solu­tion to study­ing high­er edu­ca­tion, and our fees are set at an afford­able lev­el that’s low­er than those set by most universities. 

By choos­ing to stay local you are also sav­ing mon­ey on uni­ver­si­ty accom­mo­da­tion. In Not­ting­ham, Halls of Res­i­dence can cost upwards of £8000 a year! 

Immerse yourself in Nottingham's student culture

Many of our cam­pus­es are based in the city cen­tre and Not­ting­ham is the per­fect stu­dent city. It’s big enough to keep you busy but small enough to get around eas­i­ly. By day, it’s bustling with shop­pers and work­ers and by night the numer­ous bars, restau­rants and clubs give it an eclec­tic, buzzing atmos­phere, with plen­ty to suit stu­dent bud­gets. It’s a city of diverse cul­tures and reli­gions, with a strong his­tor­i­cal identity.

Supportive study environment

The cal­i­bre of our high­er edu­ca­tion pro­vi­sion has been nation­al­ly recog­nised both by the Qual­i­ty Assur­ance Agency for High­er Edu­ca­tion (QAA) and Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty, who val­i­date the Foun­da­tion Degree and Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hon­ours) Top-up Degrees.

Our HE cours­es com­bine the right mix of aca­d­e­m­ic study and voca­tion­al expe­ri­ence.

Excellent student satisfaction

Not­ting­ham Col­lege was again ranked in the top 20% of UK col­leges (and a top rat­ed col­lege in the East Mid­lands) for stu­dent sat­is­fac­tion in a recent Nation­al Stu­dent Sur­vey. The Col­lege is also known for offer­ing a friend­ly and live­ly learn­ing envi­ron­ment with small class sizes and nation­al­ly recog­nised stu­dent sup­port. In fact, many stu­dents say that they wouldn’t have achieved a uni­ver­si­ty degree if it wasn’t for col­lege-based HE study.
