Through our resources, talent and expertise, we help bring businesses to life. We show companies - big and small - how to innovate and grow, adding vital economic, cultural and social value on a local and national scale.
By sustaining the regional economy, we are creating local opportunities for student employment and boosting graduate retention in the region. We also work with businesses to design industry focused courses, and create new routes to learning that widen participation.
From before they set foot in our University right through to the moment they become an NTU graduate and start their first job, we're making sure nothing holds students back from achieving remarkable things.
We start from the beginning with our outreach into local schools, encouraging 30,000 pupils each year to dream big and achieve academic success. Within our own walls, we help our students stay motivated and on track using our student dashboard. We also provide gold-standard teaching, and through our links with industries we create opportunities for volunteering, studying abroad, and work experience with every course.
Our achievements show that we can deliver. But none of this happens by chance.
Everything we do is carefully planned - from outreach to schools, through support to specific student groups, to employers, we know what works.
