History of University Of Nottingham
Nottingham's first civic college opened in the city centre in 1881, four years after former Prime Minister W E Gladstone placed the foundation stone. The college expanded its initial structure after World War I. Sir Jesse Boot's generous donation of 35 acres of land at Highfields provided the solution, and the College moved to what is now University Park in 1928. The University of Nottingham was granted a Royal Charter in 1948, allowing it to award degrees under its own name in the UK. The Midland College of Agriculture at Sutton Bonington merged with the University during this time, resulting in the formation of the School of Agriculture. The university is also affiliated with the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), Association of MBAs, EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), European University Association (EUA), Russell Group, Sutton 30 Universitas 21, Universities UK, Virgo Consortium and M5 Universities.
