University of Nottingham
The University of Nottingham is Britain's University of the Year (The Times Higher Awards 2006). It undertakes world-changing research, provides innovative teaching and a student experience of the highest quality.Each of the University's six faculties is comprised of a number of schools, some of which, in turn, are further divided into departments or divisions. This structure provides a strategic grouping of related academic disciplines. It also ensures that the management and administration of academic life runs efficiently.
Whilst strategic decisions, such as changes in regulations, are made at faculty level, day-to-day academic activity takes place at the level of department or school. Students will find that it is these units that organise open days, issue handbooks and organise timetables and exam boards.
