Program Description:


The University of Nottingham, one of the United Kingdom's top tier universities, has a student body of 33,400, of whom fully one-quarter hail from countries outside the UK. W&M's bilateral agreement with Nottingham is anchored in the two universities' excellent American Studies programs, but W&M students may enroll in courses in any of Nottingham's faculties: arts, education, social sciences, natural sciences, and business. The University of Nottingham also offers over 200 student organizations with which to become involved, as well as 76 sports clubs and 11 student-run services (including Karnival, the biggest student fundraising group in Europe), student television and radio stations, and the New Theater, the only fully student-run theater in Europe.

Nottingham is regarded as one of the United Kingdom's most vibrant cities. Cultural life thrives, with everything from The Royal Concert Hall, second home of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to the Nottingham Playhouse and its innovative dramas.  The arts are alive at the Theater Royal, showcasing top-class theater, ballet and opera, and the Broadway Cinema, which comes highly recommended by Quentin Tarantino. If you need a break from the rapid pace of city life, the Peak District National Park is just a short distance away. And, of course, Sherwood Forest was once home to Nottingham's best-loved outlaw, Robin Hood.

The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and the University of Nottingham allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition and fees to W&M while taking classes at Nottingham. W&M students pay housing, meals and fees on site in Nottingham.

Note: applications to study abroad at Nottingham in either semester of the academic year must be received in spring of the preceding academic year IF students want to take classes in some departments such as business, english, chemistry, physics, film studies and international relations. Please check the Nottingham website for a full list prior to applying

Students can apply for the spring semester if they wish to take classes NOT on the list.
