Our postgraduate community

NTU’s postgraduate community is characterised by its size, its passion, and its diversity. No matter your background, we’ll give you a platform here to achieve your goals and make a real impact.

Meet our postgraduates

Community is at the heart of NTU and we are proud of our close-knit and supportive environment. But don’t just take our word for it - hear from our students about what being a postgraduate student at NTU is really like.

Jeneé, a MA Fashion Knitwear Design student tells us how NTU made her feel accepted and how she was inspired to show different aspects of her culture and heritage in her work.


"NTU has really helped to cultivate me as a designer, as a student, as a person, and as a leader. You’re challenged in a positive way to continue growing and learning, and I definitely appreciate that."

"I have developed a lot of friendships with the teaching faculty and I’m happy to be part of the Nottingham Business School family."

Richard Amadi, MSc Management and PhD Business

"I chose to study at NTU because the city is bustling with creatives and employers that want to collaborate with people from NTU. It’s such an inspirational and promotional place where you’re opened up to so many different possibilities."
