What are our Global Lounges, and what will you find there?

The lounges are the place to explore the international opportunities open to you here at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). We’re proud to be an international university, and we want all of our students to have a truly international experience here.

At NTU you have the chance to get involved with international exchanges, and working, volunteering and studying abroad.

There is a Global Lounge at our City and Clifton campuses, where you can learn all about these amazing opportunities – and more. Pop in any time and have a chat with our helpful staff.

In the lounges, you’ll find:

  • lots of information about our global partners, country information, and details about funding opportunities for travel abroad
  • friendly staff ready to give you advice and answer all your questions about the international opportunities available to you on and off campus
  • comfy sofas and chairs, and complimentary tea and coffee
  • games, books, films, travel guides and more
  • a suite of ‘hot-desk’ computers – some with Skype access
  • a TV showing BBC news

They’re also an amazing place to meet people from around the world and learn about different cultures, as well as practising your language skills.
