“It’s very easy to think things are above you, like a scholarship, but just apply – you never know what will happen. I was awarded the law school partnership scholarship. Honestly I can say without this scholarship I would not have been able to come here. The scholarship has meant everything to me and has opened up so many opportunities.”
“I didn’t know I’d like this way of studying but it has given me a whole new attitude – I’ve improved so much. You’re taught to be more independent, creative and critical. Also the lecturers are so engaging here. They’ve opened my mind to new ways of thinking and they challenge me – which I like!”
“The practical approach on the course helped me a lot. And the advice I received from the careers department while applying for the work placement opportunity was invaluable. It ranged from CV writing to interview preparation. It helped me prepare for the application process and made me more assured of myself.”
“NTU doesn’t make you feel like a little fish in a big pond – it really nurtures you to learn who you are and there’s always someone there when you need help. I find that there’s a really big student spirit here, so much to see and do. It’s also so easy to get to London, Manchester and Birmingham.”
“The international officers were so helpful. They even kept in touch with my mum to help with things I wouldn’t have thought of, like where I was going to do my grocery shopping! This was a big thing for my mum and I was happy that she was happy. One of the best things here is the super-lab, it’s amazing.”
"NTU has great resources and facilities. When I was doing my foundation course at Nottingham Trent International College (NTIC) I was fascinated by the graduate degree show, which was amazing. It was the best furniture design graduate exhibition I’d ever seen and it made me determined to study here."

"I enjoy guest lectures the most because the professionals share their experiences enabling us to understand the ways of putting the theory into practice. The one-year placement on this course stood out to me because I didn’t find other universities, which I applied to, offering this opportunity."
