I really enjoy having small seminar classes, meaning that you can get to know students on your course better, as well as your tutors and lecturers.

More about Elizabeth

Why NTU?

“Aside from what I wanted out of the course, NTU’s facilities really stood out to me. The students' union was only a year old when I started, and was the only university I looked at that I felt attached with the students. Whilst comparing my choices, I felt that NTU was the most welcoming university out of them all. Additionally, they have fifty sports and society clubs, so there is always something to do, and this stood out to me as an exciting and friendly place to be.

What have you enjoyed most about your course?

“I really enjoy having small seminar classes, meaning that you can get to know students on your course better, as well as your tutors and lecturers. I feel that I learn a lot better in a smaller group too, as it is much easier to receive help that way. Additionally, some of the lecturers still work part-time in practice, so they can implement what we have learnt in to real life situations.

“The first thing I noticed about NTU is that the course staff are a lot friendlier than in high school as they treat you like adults. Tutorials every two weeks with your personal tutor help to raise any queries that you have as a group and as an individual, but help is also available in other forms such as library staff. Life at University is a lot easier when you know you can get help no matter how big or small the problem is.

What advice would you give to prospective students?

“Get to know NTU as much as you can as you will be living here for three years! I would look at all accommodation options and what makes you feel the most comfortable, as well as getting to know your way around the city too. Nottingham has so much to offer in the form of restaurants, shops, bars and more – so get a feel for all of these when you visit.

“Overall, I think NTU is such a sociable, welcoming and eventful university to be a part of. The teaching here is always interesting and passionate, and there is never a dull moment at NTU. I am very happy to be studying here and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.”
