Through our partner Nottingham Trent International College (NTIC), part of Kaplan International, we offer pre-Masters courses to progress to postgraduate courses.
We offer these in the following subject areas:

Already in the UK?
If you’re already studying or living in the UK and need advice please contact me.
I’m Katy Fair from the International Development Office at NTU and part of my job is to advise international students who are already in the UK on their study options.
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 discuss your study plans?
Whatever your query, I’ll be happy to help.
