The University of Nottingham is a public research university based in Nottingham, United Kingdom. Although it received its Royal Charter in 1948, its predecessor institution, University College, Nottingham, has been in existence since 1881. With the recent opening of further campuses in Ningbo, China and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the university has been described by the Times as Britain’s “only truly global university”.
Nottingham was ranked 13th in the UK in the 2011 QS World University Rankings, and 9th in the UK in the 2011ARWU. The 2008 RAE ranked it 7th in the UK for “research power”, and The Graduate Market Report of 2012 placed it amongst the five most targeted universities in the country by graduate employers.

Nottingham is considered a very prestigious University and has been regarded by the Daily Telegraph as part of the unofficial British “Ivy League” of elite universities that include the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Durham andWarwick among others . Nottingham traditionally has one of the highest application to place ratios in the UK, leading The Sunday Times to describe a place there as “among the most sought-after in higher education” and “with almost 10 applicants per place, Nottingham is one of the hardest universities to get into in the UK”. Thus, entry into Nottingham is extremely competitive, with new undergraduates consistently averaging a UCAS tariff score in excess of 420 points (equivalent to over AAA at A-Level) and “more than 80% of its students having at least three A grades at A-Level” according to the Times. It has been described by the Times as a “prime alternative to Oxbridge”. It received 49,000 applications for 5,500 places in 2012, making it the most oversubscribed in the UK. Admission into popular courses such as law and economics are among the most competitive in the country.
