About The University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham, located in the heart of England in Nottingham (the home of Robin Hood), is one of the world's leading academic institutions, ranked within the top 100 globally. The sporting programme is also exceptional, ranked number 2 overall in Britain, with leading programmes in over 25 different sports. This postgraduate scheme is the fastest growing in the United Kingdom. We will, for the sixth year in succession, be recruiting overseas student-athletes to come to Britain to study and compete. We recruit from all NCAA programmes and have direct relationships with many colleges on the East and West Coasts. We want to hear from you wherever you are from, with every application being considered on it's individual merits. This scheme provides you the opportunity to continue to play the sport you love, achieve a world class degree, and study abroad in England. Many students will also travel around Europe during the breaks, which is done very easily as Nottingham has it's very own airport that connects you to Europe! In addition to all of the above, this opportunity is usually far more affordable than obtaining a Masters in the USA!
