Applying to Nottingham Trent (but dont know what its like) your advice much appreciated...

by frankthetank

Hi, ive lived in the Cambridge area all my life, but moved out to Malaysia 2 years ago and am now applying to Nottingham Trent University for 2007 (but cant visit it as im living abroad). Im really tempted to put it as my first choice but i havent actually been there myself (my brother tells me its a lively party city) and its nicknamed 'tottingham' apparantly, so all in all it sounds a quality place to live. Can anyone give any advice on the Uni itself? or what its actually like to live in Nottingham? Im an 18 year old bloke whos looking to have a good time at uni, and like to party. thanks for any help in advance.

Presumably you've looked at the uni website? What is says is true, I think; certainly people I know who have gone to uni in Nottingham have enjoyed the city very much (although some areas have high crime levels). It's got a good academic record, but only became a university in 1992; before that it was a polytechnic.

The relevant Sunday Times 'Good University Guide'page is on:

I went to Trent and I loved it.
Nottingham is a great city, yes it does have dodgy areas (St.Annes and Sneinton being two of the worst) and high crime levels, we got broken into by, we found out later, a group of Indian boys stealing from their own kind, we were just unlucky students.
The uni does have a high reputation for getting work after, or its ex-students being in work after graduating.
What course are you looking into by the way?
I did Decorative Arts so know more about the art/design side of the uni.
Nottingham has a new tram system which makes it easier to get around, I lived in Forest Fields and Radford (Another dodgy area) and the tram runs behind the Asda, which is handy for your cheap food shopping.
It has a great night life, lots of live bands, well my favourite club closed down, but there's so many more sprung up to take its place. There's Sneinton market, and unfortunatly Victoria market has closed, was good for cheap fruit and veg. There's the Lace Market and Hockley areas for lots of trendy bars and clubs, there's a fair share of horrible clubs too, though it depends what you're into.
Since the huge Warner Brothers cinema opened there's lots of bars under and around there, close to the Moulin Rouge fish and chip shop for your after clubbing food.
Rent when I was there was about £40-45 a week, but I've heard it's gone up quite a bit since then.
Nottingham also has an Ikea, which is very handy for setting up a flat. Afraid I can't help you out on the girl front, I didn't pay attention to my own sex. But I've heard the proportions have levelled out now.
Good luck, feel free to ask me more if you want to know more specific about the city or uni.

Do you want to live in student accommodation? If so rememeber that the Clifton Campus is two miles out of the city. PM me if you want more - I have lived since 91

Travel Tips for Nottingham

What did you call me ?

by sourbugger

It is very common to be referred to as a 'Duck' in the East Midlands - and Nottingham is very much the capital of the East Midlands.

If someone is in their 50's or over it sounds quite quaint, but when a youngster says "Thanks Duck" it does sound a little odd.

Listen out for it.

P.S If you really are a duck, I'm not sure what the ettiquette is.

The Smallest Cinema in the World

by iwys

The Screen Room claims to be the smallest cinema in the world. It has only 22 seats. It is in Broad Street opposite Broadway Cinema. It shows the same sort of films as Broadway Cinema: mostly inependent and foreign language films. Currrently, for example, they are showing the South Korean films, "Oldboy" and "Sympathy for Lady Vengeance" and the South African film, "Tsotsi".

Admission: Adults £5.30, Students £4.10

Small theatre

by iwys about Lace Market Theatre

The Lace Market Theatre is Nottingham's third theatre, after the Theatre Royal and Nottingham Playhouse. The Dutch-style building is a former Unitarian chapel. It's an intimate venue for small-scale productions. I saw a good performance of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus here.

All performances start at 7.30pm. There no dress code. The theatre has a relaxed, informal atmosphere and you can wear what you like.

Expensive Oysters

by iwys about Loch Fyne Oster Bar

I used to really like Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. The oysters really are superb, but the place has just got too expensive, in my opinion: one oyster costs £1.50 and half a dozen cost £7.95. However. Loch Fyne oysters, from Scotland, are even sent by plane to the best 5* hotels in Hong Kong, because they are considered to be the best in the world.

Oh, I love those oysters, but should I pay that much?

Lace Market Beauty

by Nixter01

Walking along Lace Market you will find likee below, small pubs which in the summer are lovely to sit outside, there is still that old feeling there as you look up at the low roofs and at how the buildings are now leaning forward with age, time passes for no man here.
