Parents and Families

Studying in the UK is a fantastic adventure! We're honoured that your son or daughter is considering studying at NTU.

Find out more about student life at the University and get advice from our specialist international teams when you most need it.

Who to talk to for advice

Our specialist Country Advisors in the International Office can give you, and your son or daughter, advice and information on any aspect of studying at NTU, so that you'll feel able to fully support them with their study plans.

Another option would be to speak to one of our NTU Education Counsellors. These are external agencies based all over the world, with whom we have a very good relationship. They can give your family helpful advice on the application process, and they are best placed to advise on the visa applications in your country.

Welcome to the NTU family

International student support

We are very fortunate to have a dedicated international student support team at the University. They can help with any problem and offer truly excellent services, including:

  • Visa application advice (including Student visa, Graduate route and Student visa extension).
  • Help with settling in and advice on living and working in Nottingham.

Making friends and settling in

Our international students love our peaceful Global Lounges for relaxing and socialising. These are dedicated social spaces and great places to take part in cultural events or to discover other opportunities at the University, such as volunteering or learning a new language.

Your son or daughter will also be a member of the NTU Students' Union which offers many opportunities for students to relax and make new friends.

Safety, health and wellbeing

The safety of our students and staff is our top priority.

  • All University accommodation has a Warden and Student Residence Assistants who offer support, help build a community and deal with emergencies. There is also a range of security measures, including CCTV, door entry systems and on-site or on-call security staff.
  • We operate a 24/7 security team on all of our campuses.
  • We offer a 'safe taxi scheme' for all students.

If there's something you are particularly concerned about please let us know so that we can advise you.

Health and Wellbeing

Application advice

Here you'll find lots of advice so you can support your son or daughter in the best way through the application process. If you have any particular questions about applying, you may like to contact the international team

Please note, if your young adult has already applied and you have questions about their application, they must write to the Admissions team first to give permission for them to discuss any application related information with you as parents.
