NOvA is a World leading long-baseline neutrino experiment, which uses two functionally identical detectors 810 km apart. These detectors are slightly off-axis from the predominately muon neutrino NuMI beam, a 700 kW neutrino source, which is sent from Fermilab, Illinois towards northern Minnesota. The NOvA detectors are constructed from plastic extrusions filled with liquid scintillator, reducing the flux and cross-section systematic uncertainties. Neutrino interactions are studied in both detectors in order to determine both the disappearance rate of muon neutrinos, and the appearance rate of electron neutrinos, both due to neutrino oscillations. A three-flavour long-baseline neutrino oscillation search in both of these modes probes undetermined physics parameters such as the neutrino mass hierarchy (ordering), CP violation in the lepton sector and the large mixing angle octant. Recent results from this search will be presented. This dataset includes both neutrino and the first NOvA anti-neutrino data. A discussion of the future physics reach of NOvA will also be given.
