Program Location

Our program is held at New College Nottingham (NCN), located at the edge of Nottingham's City Centre in the historic Lace Market district, home to over one hundred lace factories during the 19th century. The Adams Building, home of NCN, Nottingham, is one of the city's premier Victorian landmarks.

Nottingham is in an area of England that knows and celebrates its history while anticipating its future.  Once engaged in farming, industry, lace, and candy making, its future lies in its major universities and colleges, world class health care facilities and a stunning amount of new business and housing construction.  The people are generous and outgoing with a sense of community pride and accomplishment.

Participants spend four weeks exploring the rich heritage of one of the world’s most influential countries, while taking courses that focus in and around Britain.  Nottingham, England, associated with the famous story of Robin Hood of Sherwood Forest, is located in England’s beautiful Midlands.
