Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a leading professional university with nearly 28,000 students. NTU was established over 170 years ago, beginning as the Nottingham Government School of Design in 1843. Nowadays, over 9% of NTU students are non-UK, attracted from over 90 countries. NTU is in the top six UK universities for the number of students on year-long placements. 93% of NTU graduates are employed or engaged in further study six months after graduation. Around 150 of NTU’s programmes are formally accredited or recognised by a professional, statutory or regulatory body, giving students an extra competitive edge.
NTU was the first university to offer a degree in broadcast journalism and a sandwich degree in Law. NTU’s BA (Hons) in Print Journalism and MA in Magazine Journalism are the top-performing accredited courses in the country, and student satisfaction on the sandwich degree in Law is extremely high, at 94%.
Over 1,000 NTU students gave 36,000 hours of volunteering to the local community in 2012/13. NTU has been awarded a ‘first’ in the People & Planet Green League for the fifth year running in recognition of its commitment to the environment. NTU is currently 16th in the BUCS league and provides strong support for sport for both elite athletes and the whole university community.
In the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) of 2008, 74% of activity was awarded international status and 8% was classed as world-leading – including Allied Health Professions (Biosciences/Biomedical Sciences); General Engineering (Applied Sciences/Technology); Social Work and Social Policy & Administration; and Communication, Culture and Media Studies.
Around £350 million has been invested over the last ten years developing some of the UK’s most inspiring university buildings. NTU has state-of-the-art management information systems, and was one of the first universities to adopt a paperless approach to admissions.
