Why choose Nottingham Trent University?

Ten great reasons to study at NTU – one of the most popular universities in the UK!

NTU graduates get jobs

94% of our undergraduates are in work or further study within just six months of finishing their degrees (latest Destination of Leavers from Higher Education survey 2014-15). We’re very employment-focused. From 2017 all of our courses will offer students the option of a work placement. With our strong links with industry and top rating for work placements, we know how to help you stand out from the crowd.

Our track record speaks for itself

A massive 93% of our students would recommend studying at NTU (National Student Survey 2016). We're proud of the quality of student experience we provide – we're committed to ensuring that your time living and learning in Nottingham is everything it should be.

Our teaching's top class

We’re ranked in the top 20 universities in the UK for our teaching excellence (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016). Our enthusiastic, experienced staff work hard to provide the best learning experience possible.

You can explore the world with us

We welcome students and staff from over 160 countries, and we’ve got 200 partner institutions in 35 countries. There are so many ways to get a window to the world while you’re here - study abroad on an exchange programme, learn a new language, enjoy our vibrant Global Week, and even volunteer overseas.

We're investing in your future

We’ve invested £421 million since 2003/4 across our three campuses. We’ve given our libraries a brand new look, revamped historic buildings and facilities and built state-of-the-art new ones.

We're one of the best student cities

Nottingham is a world-class student destination, with its thriving arts scene and top shopping, international sports facilities and award-winning nightlife. According to the 2015 Natwest Student Living Index, it’s also the UK’s third most cost-effective student city. Check out our guide to Nottingham.

You'll get more than just a degree

From knitting to juggling and archery to ice hockey, you’ll be spoilt for choice here with over 130 societies and sports clubs. But the opportunities don’t stop here. Volunteer, become a rep for your course or hall, get paid work in a school or be a student mentor – just a few of the ways you’ll be able to boost your CV.

We're changing the world with our research

From pioneering cancer analysis to studies on explosive detection in luggage, our world-leading research impacts people’s lives, as well as what you’ll learn. Pioneering projects have recently earned us a Queen’s Anniversary Prize – the highest national honour for a UK university.

We’re the UK’s greenest university

We have been officially recognised as the most sustainable university in the UK after once again claiming top spot in the prestigious People and Planet University League 2016. The award follows major environmental initiatives at the University, such as the creation of the eco-friendly award-winning Pavilion building on the Clifton Campus.

We'll be your home from home

Last but not least, we want NTU to be a safe and comfortable home from home - a place where you can make friends for life. Pick us as your first choice and you’ll be guaranteed a place in University-allocated accommmodation.

But don’t just take our word for it. Book your place on an open day and find out all about NTU for yourself.

We’re looking forward to meeting you.
