At NTU, we are committed to providing a stimulating and inclusive learning environment for the benefit of our students, colleagues and communities.

We want every student to be fully engaged in their learning and complete their course with the right skills and experiences to make a difference, whatever their future career goals. That’s why 100% of our undergraduate courses have work-experience embedded into the curriculum and we are actively working to integrate sustainability into our teaching across all levels of study.

We are proud to be recognised as one of the UK’s most employment-focused universities (HESA 2019/20), with 79% of eligible students completing placements in 2020-21.

At NTU, we recognise that every person’s journey through education is unique, and every student should have access to the services and tools they need to succeed. That’s why we recruit leading academics from across the world to deliver inspiring teaching and research at the cutting edge of their field, whilst also ensuring our students have access to a broad range of learning and wellbeing services that they can tap into whenever they need help.

Our steps to engage and empower our students has helped NTU to achieve a 5-star rating for teaching excellence and inclusiveness (QS Stars).
