The University of Nottingham is celebrating a summer of successes as it prepares to welcome students for the new academic year. For the next few weeks we’ll be profiling a daily story that put Nottingham in the news.

Talented University of Nottingham students receiving their degree certificates at this year’s Summer Graduation ceremony have been rubbing shoulders with a Hollywood actress and a Michelin Starred chef.

Twelve honorary graduates, all recognised leaders in their respective fields, joined thousands of students who received their degrees in a series of ceremonies last month.

The University’s newly opened David Ross Sports Village on University Park campus was transformed into the graduation venue to welcome the students and their families, along with the 12 who will be formally celebrated for making an exceptional contribution in their chosen professions.

Read about the class of 2017 here. The Nottingham Post covered Sat Bain’s degree and our royal honorary graduate in UNMC.

Clearing course listings for EU and UK students will be released on the evening of Wednesday 16 August.  Our Clearing hotline will open at 8am on Thursday 17 August. Places are still available for qualified international students (outside the EU) on many of our undergraduate courses starting in September 2017.
