NTU has an outstanding reputation for innovative courses with an international perspective. Our students benefit from our excellent academic teaching staff, world-leading research, links with industry and outstanding facilities.
Our cultural partnerships connect students and staff from across the university with projects and opportunities with key cultural institutions.
Working in partnership with key cultural institutions
NTU champions arts and culture and plays an active role in the cultural life of the city. We have strategic partnerships with Nottingham Contemporary, the Nottingham Castle Trust, Nottingham Playhouse, Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, and ChalleNGe Nottingham, the Cultural Education Partnership. These relationships span multiple schools and colleges and create opportunities for students, staff, and the wider public. We also enjoy mutually beneficial relationships with many more city cultural organisations at course and college level.
Every cultural strategic partnership is bespoke, but they all achieve four main aims; they contribute to our curriculum, improve our student experience, add to our research activity, and enrich society. At the same time, they grow our sector knowledge and provide fascinating insights into the cultural industries.
