Students on campus


Enrolment is when you officially register as a student with Nottingham Trent University.

It also officially confirms that you have arrived in the UK and are ready to start your studies.

You’ll need to start the enrolment process online before you leave your country.

You’ll then complete your enrolment when you’ve arrived in Nottingham.

Your course

Your course start date is on your CAS statement and in your confirmation email.

Check your email (the email you used in your application) for this information and for other messages from us.

Some courses have pre-arrival tasks that you'll need to complete. Your Academic School will email you if you need to do a course related task.
