The nightlife in Nottingham is very much geared towards the typical student, with big nightclubs and a few pretentiously expensive bars generally prevailing as people's favourite destinations. If you're not a fan of the clubbing scene you may find it difficult at first to find fun, alternative ways to spend your evenings. However this is more an issue with the city centre than anything else and in fact the university boasts a genuinely surprising variety of societies for students to get involved in.×

I find it too expensive to buy my lunch everyday. We have a Boots store on campus which offers a meal deal, and some of the cafe's around campus offer a meal deal also. I would normally bring my own lunch and drink so I didn't build up unnecessary costs. Transport is very cheap and good value for money especially when living in private rented accommodation because it's quite far away. Book cost can be quite high in the university book shop so I do most of my book shopping online where i can get books very cheap.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
