I applied to this uni through clearing after completing a gap year. I had heard Nottingham was a great town, with lively night life and good shopping - and all the rumours were true. It was fantastic.
I would say nottingham is quite similar to London, It has everything that you could possibly need, but on a smaller scale.
The university was rated quite highly for media and arts courses. Although i never actually visited the uni or town before i started uni, i found my way around easilly and everyone was very friendly.
I have always been interested in the media, film and audio was my main reason for attending, but i learnt such a variety of subjects, that i came out a wanting to be a web designer and animator.
I learnt about every subject possible to do with media, and had the freedom to explore which ever topic i prefered in my project work.
As the course is mostly practical work, the hours are quite long compared to more academic subjects. I averaged 22hours per week.
I was very impressed with the course overall. The tutors and lecturers were always friendly and approachable.
My Uni experience was great, as good as it could get i think.
