Following NTUs recently renewed Memorandum of Understanding with the prestigious Makerere University (MAK) in Uganda, NTU Global were delighted to receive a visit by Mrs Martha Muwanguzi, the Head of the MAK International Office.

Mrs Muwanguzi travelled to Nottingham not only to learn how NTU supports it’s international students and to discuss further partnership initiatives, but also to visit her son and daughter (Duncan and Naomi), both of whom are currently studying on ADBE’s MSc in Real Estate at NTU's City Campus.

During the visit Mrs Muwanguzi met with NTU Global’s Exchange and Student Experience Teams, the International Development Office, and International Student Support to learn about the many different ways in which NTU interacts with it’s international student body.  Themes that ran across the meetings are; the specialist support students are able to access, how the student voice is a focus, and how NTU encourages both domestic and overseas students to integrate and engage with each other.

The beautiful weather meant a trip to Brackenhurst was essential, and Dr Kelly Yarnell, Student Experiences Manager and Principal Lecturer in Animal and Equine Science kindly hosted NTU Global’s Tee Dymond, Mrs Muwanguzi, Duncan and Naomi for a campus tour.  The grounds looked stunning in the sunshine and the introduction to the Brackenhurst horses made it a very memorable afternoon.
