The NTU Summer Residential is an opportunity for ten year 9 pupils (per school) to experience two days and one night at Nottingham Trent University.

Many young people we work with have limited knowledge of what university is like. So, over the two days, pupils will gain an insight in to university life by working with current university students, taking part in different subject tasters and university related activities. They will also stay overnight in student accommodation on campus.

The NTU Summer Residential is completely free of charge to schools and pupils, with costs covered by NTU.

Places are limited. If you are interested in booking places for your school, please register your interest below..
