University of Nottingham

The Fulbright University of Nottingham Award covers the first year of any masters degree or doctoral programme offered by the University of Nottingham in any subject area.

Established in 1881 and awarding degrees since 1948, the University of Nottingham is a founder member of the Universitas 21 international network and the UK's prestigious Russell Group, a group of the UK's leading universities committed to the highest standards in teaching and research.

Nottingham is ranked in the world's top 100 universities and the UK's top 15 by the QS World University Rankings 2019, and is recognised as both International University of the Year and Sports University of the Year for 2019 in The Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide.

The latest Research Excellence Framework (2014) ranked Nottingham 8th in the UK for research power, with more than 97% of research recognized internationally, while more than 80% of Nottingham's research is ranked as "world-leading" or "internationally excellent."

Currently home to more than 200 students from the USA, the University of Nottingham offers a friendly and academically diverse environment for US students to pursue their college studies.

Beyond the campuses, Nottingham is a compact and vibrant city with plenty to explore: historic buildings, cosmopolitan restaurants, cultural festivals, music events, museums and art galleries, sports venues and cinemas, theatres, nightclubs and bars. The city is surrounded by beautiful English countryside, including the Peak District and Sherwood Forest. Nottingham's central location, only two hours from London by train, and excellent transport links also make it an ideal base for exploring the UK.
