Being at NTU
Whether you're new or returning to NTU, you’re part of our NTU Community, and we’re here for you every step of the way. We want you to feel confident, prepared, and excited about life at NTU and to experience everything we, and the city of Nottingham, have to offer.New to NTU? Complete your starter's checklist
Ten days. Hundreds of events. One unforgettable adventure.
Taking place from 17 to 26 September, Welcome is the perfect opportunity to experience different cultures, meet new people and make friends.
You’ve come through more than most to be here, so we want to give you the best possible introduction to uni life. Covering ten days and nights — and hundreds of events along the way — Welcome 2021 is the perfect start to your NTU adventure.
At university, you really do get what you give. Your appetite for adventure will go a long way to deciding your NTU experience — the things you achieve, the friends you make, and the memories you graduate with.
There’s something for everyone this year, both in person and online. Most events are free or heavily subsidised. Don’t just stick to one campus either – get out and explore.

How to Enrol
To officially register as a student with NTU, you will need to enrol at the start of every academic year. Once your course has started, you have 14 days to complete the enrolment process, but we encourage you to complete your enrolment as soon as possible.
Your Course Induction
Course inductions take place in the first few weeks of term and are designed to introduce you to your course and how you'll learn at NTU – from our online teaching tools, to the buildings and facilities that you'll use as part of your studies.
Arranging your Funding
Before you arrive at NTU it’s important that you make sure your funding is in place. Here we explain how to arrange your student finance and how your student finance payments are released.
From the moment you arrive there’s plenty to consider, the little details may not be exciting, but they are important!
Preparing for Your Studies
Studying at university level may be a different learning experience than you’re used to. Whether you're an undergraduate or postgraduate student, it helps to know what to expect when you start your studies with us, and where to get help if you need it.
Preparing for Student Life
Whether you’re moving away from home for the first time or returning to study after working, coming to university can be a big change. There’s so much going on at NTU for you to discover and get involved in.
