    Pros

    I spent my undergradute studies at the university of Nottingham and now I am finishing my PhD project in the department of electrical and electronic engineering. The atmosphere of the university is very multicultural and the level of teaching and support is good. The campus is also very beatiful.

    Cons

    support is only given for 3 years of your PhD study. therefore the write-up period will be finantially challenging.
