The University of Nottingham is among the top universities in the UK and continues to earn acclaim as one of Europe's most respected academic institutions. It is also consistently placed highly in national league tables of academic achievement and all of the major university guides, including The Financial Times, The Times, The Telegraph and The Guardian. The Times has described Nottingham 'a prime alternative to Oxford and Cambridge' and The Telegraph ranks it as ?one of the UK's most prized academic institutions'. The University continues to outperform most UK universities in independent measures of our research and teaching, and 2003 was a particularly remarkable year. The Nobel Prize for Medicine was awarded to one of our leading academics, Sir Peter Mansfield, in recognition of his work in Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and there was an additional Nobel Prize for Economic Science to a Nottingham graduate and former member of staff, Professor Clive Granger.
