Program Description:

**Please note that this is the last semester the GEO will be accepting applications for the assisted enroll program at the University of Nottingham.   Spring 2017 is the last semester students will be able to study abroad on this program option. We encourage all students planning to study abroad on this program during the Academic Year 2017-2018 to consider studying abroad in Spring 2017 if they have the flexibility in their academic plans. 
Please note that the exchange option for the University of Nottingham will remain open.  

Also note that courses in some academic departments are not available for spring semester unless you apply a full year ahead, which would have been spring 2015 for study in spring 2016. These departments include business, english, chemistry, physics, fim and media studies and more.  Please refer to the Nottingham website for the complete list:  Students can apply for spring 2016 and take courses in departments NOT on the list. 

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, 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.

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.

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.
