About the Provider 

Nottingham’s most memorable city school was opened in the downtown area in 1881, four years after the establishment stone was laid by previous State leader, W E Gladstone. An unknown promoter had offered £10,000 for a school on the condition that a reasonable structure is raised by the Committee and that the school ought to be furnished with £4,000 every year. In 1948, the school was granted the Regal Sanction and turned into The University of Nottingham, presently ready to grant degrees in its own name. During this period the School of Agriculture was laid out when the Midland School of Agriculture at Sutton Bonington converged with the College.

The University of Nottingham was established on the vision and magnanimous soul of Jesse Boot who, in 1928, gave the land that is presently University Park. The vision of a college given to disclosure, endeavor, and the headway of the human condition, joined with his deep-rooted obligation to further develop well-being and prosperity, stays natural for the way of life of the College today and will keep on supporting our future reason.
