- Professor Seamus D Garvey
The University of Nottingham
The University has gained an outstanding international reputation for its world-class teaching and research and has won numerous awards including Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 2006 and 2007 and The Times Higher Award for ‘Entrepreneurial University of the Year’ in 2008. Our commitment to attracting the highest calibre staff and investing in research is further demonstrated through the two Nobel Prizes - for Medicine and Economic Sciences - awarded to Nottingham academics in 2003.
The University is described by The Times as “the nearest Britain has to a truly global university”. Our vision of an international education has taken us beyond what most other universities attempt through the establishment of campuses in Malaysia and China. These campuses near Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, and in Ningbo, China, comprise nearly 8,000 students. Together with the UK student community of over 32,000 students, a quarter of whom are international, this constitutes a unique learning environment with the largest number of international students of any British university. We are now acknowledged as a leader in the internationalisation of higher education, and our students come from more than 150 countries.
Our reputation for excellence in teaching and research across the full range of academic disciplines makes us one of the first choices for undergraduate and postgraduate students worldwide. We receive nine applications for every place and have nearly 40,000 students and 6,700 members of staff worldwide. Our total income in 2010 exceeded £500m, and in 2009/10 we secured a record £150m in research awards, a 7.2 per cent increase on the previous year’s total.
As a commercially-focused university, we have a wide range of connections with business. We are in the top five British institutions for income from industry with a research portfolio worth over £300m. We have developed partnerships with a range of key corporate partners such as Rolls-Royce, Astra Zeneca, Pfizer, Mars, Shell and Unilever amongst others. The results of many of our research projects make significant contributions to industry knowledge.
The University is highly regarded on a social, economic, scientific and political level and respected by both the business and academic communities. We aim to firmly establish ourselves among the top ten UK universities by 2015 and to be recognised around the world for the quality of our education and research. Our status as a fast rising Top 75 University in the most widely circulated world ranking tables is an indication of our ambition, calibre and future potential.
We are very well placed to prosper in an increasingly competitive and globalised environment, despite the economic turbulence currently experienced by many countries. We are a comprehensive University and our size and scale makes us resilient and allow us to respond to new opportunities.
Every year we attract increasing numbers of students whilst maintaining entry standards which are among the very highest in the country. We are fortunate in having quite extraordinary campuses which are a great benefit in student recruitment, and our campuses in Asia give us a unique asset in an increasingly globalised world.
The University is facing its future with a renewed and expanded sense of purpose and vision, which is the result of a year-long internal consultation that culminated in our ‘Strategic Plan 2010-15’. We are making the Plan widely available so our current and prospective staff, students and community and commercial partners understand what drives us, what we intend to achieve, and how they can be part of our success.
