Progressing from NTIC to NTU
Congratulations on passing your NTIC course, ready for the next step on your student journey.There are some things you need to do before you can progress to the University, you'll find everything you need on this page.
Help and advice
Hi, I'm Chloe and I'm the NTIC Progression Coordinator here at NTU.
If you have questions about progressing from NTIC, I can advise.
You can email me or come for an informal chat at one of our progression drop-in sessions.
Drop-in sessions are every Tuesday 13:00 - 14:00 and you don't need an appointment.
However, if you plan to change your progression course you will need to make an appointment with me as this will take more time.
I'm based in the Global Lounge on the City Campus. Why not come and join us for the Global Community Lunch on a Thursday 12:00 - 14:00? It's a great way to meet students from around the world and enjoy a free lunch!
It's really important that you read the information on this page and take action as soon as possible.
We've put together a checklist to make your progression to the University as smooth as possible.
Start by logging in to the NTU Applicant Portal where you'll find your progression course application.
Your username and password for the Applicant Portal
When NTIC confirms your details with NTU our Admissions team will send an email to you from firstname.lastname@example.org. This email will confirm that an account has been created for you on the NTU Applicant Portal and it will also give you a username (an email address) and a password for you to log in.
You won’t be able to log on to the portal until you receive this email. On the portal you can:
- check the status of your NTU progression course application
- view the conditions of your offer
- upload documents required to meet the conditions of your offer
- update your personal information
Important information about your username and password
Your username looks like this: Tnumber@ntu.ac.uk
It is NOT: Tnumber@myntu.ac.uk or your personal email address.
Your password is NOT the password you use to log in to your university account.
If you don’t know your password, have forgotten it, or just want to change it, you can do this by selecting ‘forgotten my password’ on the log in screen.
Check your details on the Applicant Portal
Please take the time to check that all the details of your progression course application are correct.
Click on ‘my details’ to check your personal details and make any changes if necessary.
Click on ‘my applications’ to check that your chosen progression course is correct, and that the course length is correct (FT = full time; SW = sandwich/course has a work placement option).
Click on ‘view conditions’ to understand what you need to do in order for your ‘conditional offer’ to become ‘place confirmed’.
Check to see if there any extra requirements you'll need to do for the course, for example a portfolio, personal statement or interview.
Meet your conditions, upload your documents
CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies)
We'll send your CAS to your T-number email address when you've met all your conditions (so that on the NTU Applicant Portal, it should say 'place confirmed').
Look out for this important email – you’ll need your CAS to apply for your visa.
Check your CAS (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) carefully.
If there are any mistakes on your CAS please email NTICEnquiries@ntu.ac.uk to get them corrected.
Please note if you have been awarded an NTIC Distinction Scholarship it will not appear on your CAS either as money already paid or as a reduction of fees.
Getting your visa to study at NTU
Your Tier 4 NTIC visa is NOT VALID for study at the University, you must apply for a new visa before you start your studies at NTU.
- your NTIC visa expires before the start of your NTU course; you must apply for a new one to continue studying;
- you must make a new visa application before you complete your enrolment at NTU;
- depending on when your NTIC visa expires, you may have to make your visa application from outside the UK. If there is a gap of more than 28 days between your current visa expiry date and your course start date at NTU, you cannot make your visa application in the UK;
- you must show a visa which is valid for study at NTU during the enrolment period; 16th September – 3rd October 2019. If you have made your visa application in the UK and have not yet received your new visa, you will need to show proof that you have made your visa application (application confirmation + appointment booking confirmation)
Here in the International Student Support team we have a lot of experience helping NTIC students get their visas to study at the University.
We can help you with the online visa application form, and we can also check your documents before you submit your application.
Please check your email regularly for updates on the support available from our team during the summer.
Please contact us by e-mail or in person (our enquiry desk is open 1-4pm weekdays) at the Student Services Centre in Newton Building, City Campus. You can also call us on +44 (0)115 848 2631. Our web pages have lots of information to help you with your visa application, including step by steps guides and checklists.
Enrolment is really important because it's your official registration with the University.
You can start the enrolment process online and complete the final steps of your enrolment in person when you're on campus.
Check your T number email regularly for information about your enrolment (registration), module selection and your course induction. If you are unable to access your T number email, please contact IT Support for help with this.
Our Welcome 2019 starts on 20 September and is a great way to settle in to the University and meet your classmates and staff from your course.
You must be on campus on the start date of your course which is stated in your CAS; let us know as soon as possible about any changes to your personal circumstances that may delay your return to the University (for example, visa refusal or funding).
