More about Priya
What made you choose to study at NTU?
“I fell in love with the campus and it felt really homely to me. I loved how it was small and modern but the distance to city and the buses made it so accessible. I’m not a fan of city living so it was great!”
What were the key features that attracted you to your course?
“The passion that the lecturers had for their subject and their field of study within literature made it seem super inviting. I felt that we could all share our passions during the course.”
What do you think about the course staff – include lecturers, tutors, administrators and technical staff within this. How do they support your learning and University experience?
“Extremely supportive! They are always there for you outside of contact hours and happy to help with assessments, something I wish I had taken more advantage of in my first year.”
What do you think about the facilities available to you? :
“They are great, the library is super easy to navigate and not a daunting place and the staff are always there to help. I love the ’request a book‘, option for texts that they do not stock. There are a lot of places to settle down on the campus and get stuff done or just to relax, which is really good.”
What do you like about studying and living in Nottingham?
“I love how it has a big city feel but a small city size. I also love the wide range of independent businesses there are, it makes shopping and eating out so much more exciting. The nightlife is incredible.”
Why would you recommend your course / NTU to someone looking to study in that area?
“The course load is manageable if you plan your time correctly. I feel that NTU really hears the students’ voices and tries to act on it, I have seen evidence of modules being changed due to student feedback. The campuses are all full spec and to a high standard. It’s a fun place to study and it’s in the heart of the country.”
Have you completed any work placements and if so can you tell me a little bit about them – where you went and what you did?
“I did a short-day volunteering for Penguin at their Write Now event. I heard about this via my lecturer who thought this would be a perfect opportunity for me and a few of my peers. It was a wonderful and eye-opening experience, which allowed me to speak to an editor at Penguin to ask for career advice, as editing is a field I’d love to go into. I was helping take notes of the day, as well as assisting the guests to their rooms and meetings. It really gave me a taste of what it would be like to work in this field.”
