Information and entry requirements for students from Malawi

Interested in studying at Nottingham Trent University (NTU)? On this page, we’ve included everything you’ll need to know – meet NTU’s Representative for Malawi, learn about our entry requirements, and sign up to keep in touch with us.

Vera Hau

Welcome to NTU

Hello, my name’s Kotana Hau and I'm the NTU Representative for Malawi.

We have a long history of welcoming students from Malawi. There’s a lively African community here who’ll make you feel very welcome.

I come from Malawi and regularly visit Lilongwe and Blantyre.

I love meeting new students and families personally to give advice and guidance.

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

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) for September 2022.

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

To apply please complete our application form and we'll assess you for all scholarships you are eligible for.

Final deadline: Wednesday 29 June 2022

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.
