Already in the UK?

Hi. I’m Nicholas Cuthbert from the International Development Office here at NTU and part of my job is to advise international students who are already in the UK on their study options.

If you’re already studying or living in the UK and need advice please contact me.

Maybe you’d like to come to one of our open days? Or arrange a time informally to come and have a look around? Or just to discuss which UK qualifications we accept for entry to the University.

Whatever your query, I’ll be happy to help.
