The College, Nottingham and the UK

Nottingham College is a vibrant, cosmopolitan college - located in the heart of a great student city.

Our educational history spans many years, combining traditional quality standards with innovative teaching and technology.

Today, successful growth has resulted in the college occupying 10 major sites - three of which are in the city centre and with a further eight spread through the larger Nottingham conurbation area. All of our sites are welcoming, with their own unique atmosphere and each being a great place to meet and make new friends - not just from the UK but from countries worldwide. Find out more about our college campuses here.

Nottingham College has created an excellent learning environment to ensure each and every student has the opportunity to succeed. Our facilities include: on-site Learning Centres offering library services and computer, internet and printing facilities; vocational training workshops; refectories; restaurants and our health and beauty salons.

International students have made Nottingham College (ncn and Central before that) their choice for over thirty years. Today, students study on a range of courses from A level and pre-degree through to Higher Education with our Foundation Degree and BA top-up programmes. See our International courses page for more information.

The International Office has a dedicated team of staff to support students through their UK experience.
