Program Description:



The University of Nottingham, one of the United Kingdom's top tier universities, has a student body of 32,000, 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 Theatre, the only fully student-run theater in Europe. Please note, 20 credits at Nottingham are equivalent to 5 W&M credits.

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 Theatre Royal, showcasing top-class theatre, 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 to W&M while taking classes at Nottingham. The exchange program is best for VA in-state residents. Students not chosen for the exchange program have the option of assisted enrollment. Assisted enrollment requires W&M students to pay tuition to the University of Nottingham. Out-of-state students often find assisted enrollment the best option. All W&M students pay housing, meals and fees on site in Nottingham.

Note that applications to study abroad at Nottingham in either semester of the academic year must be received in spring of the preceding academic year.

 NOTE: 1. Applications are first reviewed by the Reves Center, and students nominated for the exchange program are notified. Application materials are then sent to the school abroad (and the school abroad often requests additional materials at this time). When the school abroad completes their application review, students are then notified of the final acceptance decision. This timeline varies greatly from school to school. In rare cases a student nominated by the Reves Center will not be selected by the school abroad to attend their university; the Reves Center would then explore further options for the student. 2. Any start and end dates listed are to serve as a guide for general planning, but specific dates are subject to change and may not include mandatory orientation programs or exams. Contact your host university for the most accurate dates.
