The city has a great shopping centre, cinemas, contemporary art galleries, two theatres, restaurants and even an ice rink!
Our courses take place on the 65 acre Jubilee Campus of the University of Nottingham, 20 minutes’ bus ride for the city centre. Opened in 1999, this modern facility has. architect-designed buildings, a series of lakes, and environmentally friendly buildings.. All classrooms are equipped with modern teaching facilities and audio visual aids.
