In the latest Research Excellence Framework 2021, 83% of NTU’s research outputs and 86% of our research impact were assessed to be either world-leading or internationally excellent.

As a university, we are proud to be recognised as a research-inclusive institution, engaging with local people, communities and partners to define our priorities and guide our outputs. We empower our students and colleagues to push boundaries and find solutions to the challenges that really matter, ensuring equality of opportunity for all.


Our academic community

Our thriving academic community is a key part of our success, so it is important to us that our academic colleagues feel supported, valued and heard. Whether you’re at the start of your career, a senior lecturer or an experienced professor, we are committed to supporting your professional development, listening to your ideas and recognising your success.

We’re proud to be a diverse and inclusive University, where everyone can meet their full potential regardless of their background.  Our staff and student community includes individuals from over 160 different countries and we were the first UK University to sign the Social Mobility Pledge.

“I received very strong support from NTU for initiating the Advanced Optics and Photonics lab from scratch and also for applying for external funding opportunities. I believe NTU’s support has enabled me to flourish and reach my potential in the best possible way."

“My job is multifaceted: it allows me to carry out the academic responsibilities of teaching and research, but also to participate and contribute to the implementation of the international strategy of the School and University. My favourite aspect about my role is that it is dynamic, current, and eclectic.”
