"To say that Pistorius has suffered is one thing. To say that he has already been punished is another matter entirely."
Professor Bill Dixon from our School of Sociology and Social Policy has blogged about the sentencing of Oscar Pistorius.

Nottingham City Transport took some students to Langar Airfield and let them loose with double decker buses. Seriously. And it was Nottingham Trent Uni v Uni of Nottingham. Who won?

So, I'm really interested in attending the school and actually moving to the UK permanently (I currently live in the USA and yes I am very serious about this plan), but I'm lost on where to start amidst the different visas and whatnot. I was just wondering if there were any international students on here that you knew of that I could talk to and maybe get some advice on where to start? If not then it's fine, thank you either way!! :)

Hi thiscaseyisclosed!

You should definitely come to the UK, we have Sherlock and Harry Potter and Doctor Who and all sorts of wonderful things. And the main University of Nottingham campus is essentially next door to Wayne Manor (aka Wollaton Hall). Who else can say Batman is their neighbour?

But yes, moving to the UK from the USA entails a lot of planning and isn’t as easy as stepping into a TARDIS. We have a lot of international students here, including plenty from the USA, so there are many many people who can offer you some advice and tips.

We’ve got a page on our website especially for students from the USA thinking of applying. You’ll find some helpful info about visas and such, and also the details of our contact for USA students. Our International Office is on Facebook if you want to say hello.

ATTENTION TUMBLR FRIENDS. If you can give Casey any advice on where to start with all of this please get in touch.

Scariest selfie ever?

Our soil scientists at the Hounsfield Facility on Sutton Bonington Campus have helped a Star Wars fan find out if the mystery box he bought online contained a collectable figure worth thousands.

How? By using a super CT scanner to look inside the box. He was hoping for a rare Boba Fett … but he had an Emperor Palpatine worth only about £30.

By Harry Copson (SU President 14/15).

Anyone who was unfortunate enough to be in my Welcome Address talk this year – will hopefully remember that much of the topic of it was what our new intake of students can expect from our University and how to make the most of it. Following on from…

Flashback to Sunday 21 September when thousands of new students had just moved in… Harry Copson, uonsu President takes to the stage…
