Support for international students

If you’re an international student, we aim to give you all the support you need here at NTU - from helping you to settle in, to providing practical advice on visa issues. We work hard to make sure that you’ve got the time, space and confidence to really enjoy your studies.

Nottingham Trent University international students

What does it mean to be an international student?

Studying abroad will get you more than just a qualification. It builds your independence and self-reliance, broadens your horizons, and gives you a truly global perspective on life. It doesn’t just enhance your CV or résumé - living and studying abroad is an unforgettable experience, helping you to better appreciate your own world, and the one around you.

What support's available?

If you’ve got any questions or concerns, visit our International Student Support pages.

They can provide all the guidance you’ll need on:

  • the application and renewal process for student visas, as well as your CAS number.
  • the procedure for inviting friends and family to visit you in the UK, whether it’s during your studies, or at graduation time.
  • the regulations on employment for international students, if you’re thinking of applying for casual work here.
  • travelling outside of the UK as an international NTU student, and regulations you’ll need to know about.
  • settling in and staying safe and in control, whether that’s opening a UK bank account, or registering with the local police.
  • your entitlement to NHS healthcare, as well as how and where to register.
  • NTU’s programme of Welcome Week events and activities, which will help you to explore the city, meet new people, and settle in.
  • the opportunities that are available to all NTU students to make the most of your time here, from volunteering to joining a student society at The Student’s Union.
  • meeting the academic challenge of studying abroad, through our Study Support provision.

We also run welcome events at the start of the academic year to introduce students to the service and help you to settle in to life in Nottingham and at NTU. We offer information sessions throughout the year for students who need to extend their visas to remain in the UK to study, as well as one-to-one appointments for students in more complex situations.  Additionally, we also offer a range of useful guidance notes to answer many of the questions that international students may have.
