We are proud to be recognised as an inspiring University with an outstanding reputation for teaching, research, sustainability and wellbeing. There's no place like NTU.

Nottingham Trent University’s success can be measured in many different ways. Whether it is our high graduate employment statistics, the international reputation of our academics or our investment into new buildings and facilities, our success is not measured in awards and accolades alone.

‘Our continual drive for success is one of the many reasons why we’re one of the most popular universities in the UK, with the 3rd highest number of accepts in 2022 and highest number from 2018-2021 (UCAS acceptance data, 2018-22).’
