Students can study from Certificate level right through to BA (Hons) in Combined Studies, Fine Art or Humanistic Counselling Practice or Studies.

The University of Nottingham welcomes applications from all

students irrespective of age, race and gender. Our aim is to

provide a high level of support and guidance from the moment

you first enquire to the moment you graduate. The University has

created a brief guide to existing facilities and services for students

who have a disability which can be accessed here. The Disability

Policy Advisory Unit (DPAU) is responsible for promoting access

for all students and applicants who have a disability by influencing

the development of policy and procedures relating to disability.
