Supporting your studies

Starting at university can seem a big step up from A-levels, and with so much else going on outside of lectures, you may find yourself needing some additional support with your studies.

Student support

We’re here for whatever you need, whenever you need us

At NTU, you’ll have access to a huge range of study support options and programmes. We want to see you reach your potential, while getting the most out of your time here.

Our study support services include:

  • Academic writing

    We run a wide range of academic writing workshops to help with your studies, as well as more informal lunchtime drop-in sessions. Our Student Mentors and library team are also available on all three campuses, to provide help and guidance with your academic work.

  • English language for international students

    If you need some support with your English language skills, book an appointment with our English Language Support Team, or visit Nottingham Language Centre.

  • Exam stress support

    It’s normal to find revision challenging, and to feel anxious. Luckily our Stamp Out Stress campaign is here to help you combat those deadline blues, exam worries and dissertation woes! We've got a whole load of different activities going on, so whether you need a bit of TLC, an energy boost or some support for your studies, we've got you covered.

  • Health and wellbeing support

    You’re more likely to do well in your studies if you’re feeling happy and healthy. We have a range of services and resources to help you to focus on your health and wellbeing. We also have specialist mental health advisers who can provide advice on practical and study-related support that is available.

  • Information literacy

    Worried about plagiarism? It can happen - however unintentionally. If you’ve any doubts, our libraries can help you with referencing – take advantage of their information literacy workshops and drop-in sessions.

  • IT resources

    There’s loads of IT resource rooms and thousands of PCs across all three NTU campuses, so you’ll always be able to find somewhere to work. The resource rooms at Clifton and City are open 24-7 too, for when the urge to work strikes at a strange time!

  • Library resources

    We opened a brand new £2.75m eco-library at Brackenhurst in 2013, and have also invested £4.2m in redeveloping the Boots library on the City site, giving you a huge selection of resources and study spaces. Find out more about the resources at NTU libraries.

  • Maths support

    You can have one-to-one maths support sessions at your local NTU library, and even book appointments with one of our Maths tutors to help you improve your numeracy skills.

  • NOW: Nottingham Trent University Online Workspace

    You can use NOW – our tailored virtual learning environment – for your distance learning and to access module information, resources for study, NTU news and email from anywhere in the world. Find out more about NOW.
