Vera Hau
Ms Kotana Hau
NTU Country Advisor, Malawi

Welcome to NTU

Hello, my name’s Kotana Hau and I'm the NTU Country Advisor for Malawi. We have a long history of welcoming students from Malawi and there’s a lively African community here who’ll make you feel very welcome.

I myself come from Malawi and regularly visit Lilongwe and Blantyre.

Parents and family

There's lots of useful information on our parents and family web pages for you to explore. When I go to Malawi I love meeting new students and families personally to give advice and guidance.

You can see my current visit schedule or you can register with us and we’ll let you know when I’m next visiting.


Sub-Saharan Africa High Achievers Award

We are pleased to offer up to £3,000 fee reduction to all high achieving Sub-Saharan African students. To be eligible you must:

  • Achieve a 1st class degree from a recognised university in your Home nation.
  • Be a resident and national of a Sub-Saharan African county.

The Sub-Saharan Africa High Achievers Award is now closed for applications. The final deadline was 1 March 2023.

You can still apply for the main scholarship scheme. Find out more information about our deadlines and how to apply below.

LLM Sub-Saharan Africa Scholarship

Nottingham Law School (NLS) is pleased to offer one competitive scholarship up to a value of half your tuition fee.

We welcome applications from students from Malawi who are holding an offer to study on a NLS full-time LLM Masters programme (not including LPC/BTC).

The scholarship will be awarded to the candidate who most closely meets the criteria for the award.

Find out more information about our deadlines and how to apply below.

I returned to NTU, in January 2019 for my Ph.D. and it felt just like coming home. I am clearly biased, but I think NTU is the best for business and economics-related courses.
