COVID-19 Guidance

Here you'll find the latest updates on COVID-19 in Nottingham and how we're working to ensure a safe and high-quality learning environment for our future students.

Last updated 6 January 2021.

Due to COVID-19 it’s hard to tell what the academic year for 2021 / 22 will look like, but NTU is good at adapting. For now we have adopted a range of blended teaching and learning methods to ensure our students receive the best NTU experience.

If you’re planning on joining us in September 2021 some temporary changes to course delivery may be required, depending on the latest government guidelines at the time.

If you're currently studying at NTU, find the latest information to stay up-to-date.

Guidance for undergraduate applicants and offer holders

We are still accepting applications for courses starting in September 2021. You can apply for an undergraduate or foundation degree via UCAS.

UCAS deadlines

The UCAS application deadline is now 18:00 on Friday 29 January. Any student who applies by this date is guaranteed to be considered for their chosen course, and courses cannot close before this date.

We’d advise you not to leave your application to the last minute to avoid problems submitting it, so if you're ready to apply then please go ahead and do so. If you do miss the deadline, try not to panic - for a lot of courses at NTU, we also continue to accept applications beyond this date.

If you need any support or advice, please contact the admissions and enquiries team.


Following the announcement that alternative arrangements are going to be made for GCSE, A level and other examinations in England, it has now been confirmed that teacher assessed grades will be used to award qualifications in Summer 2021.

We are currently waiting for further guidance from the Department for Education and Ofqual on what this means. We’re also waiting for information on other qualifications such as BTECs.

However, this shouldn’t be a reason for you to worry. We will continue to make offers based on pending qualifications as normal, and if you are currently holding an offer please rest assured that this remains valid.

We’ll also update these pages and let you know as we find out more information.
