The International Development Office and our Admissions teams are open and we are here to support you and your students as you apply to NTU.

  • Applying to NTU

    Please check the frequently asked questions from international applicants for the very latest information.

    Please submit undergraduate (Bachelors) applications via UCAS and email a copy of the full application to the team. If your student only wishes to apply to NTU or wishes to apply for a postgraduate (Masters) application, you can apply directly using the portal.

    We have a detailed Agent Application Portal Guide online to support you and, if you would like to arrange an online training session, just let us know.

    We understand how difficult it has been for your students to access English language testing centres during this challenging time. As a result, we're pleased to announce that we are now offering a free online English language test to all offer holders, called Kaplan International Tools for English (KITE).

    Find out more about KITE and the range of alternative online language tests we are now accepting.

    Our Pre-sessional English for Academic Purposes (PEAP) courses are now being delivered online. Although agents would not normally be eligible for commission for online / distance learning courses, we are making an exception for our online PEAP course. You would be eligible for commission at the usual rate as per your contract.

  • Students currently studying at NTU

    We are keeping our students regularly updated through various channels, a dedicated webpage has been set up to provide advice for current students.
