Nottingham Trent University is a teaching intensive university. Our students are our first priority. This focus has led us to being named University of the Year 2017 by Times Higher Education and The Times / Sunday Times Good University Guide Modern University of the Year 2018. NTU achieved a Gold ranking in the UK Government’s recent Teaching Excellence Framework. All of these awards testify that NTU is one of the most outstanding providers of teaching and learning in the country.
This is reflected in our National Student Survey scores. These have been improving consistently and in 2017 our overall satisfaction rating stood at 89%, well above and moving away from the sector average. 93% of our final year students said they would recommend you study here. By the time that you join us, almost all of our core teaching staff will possess external accreditation of their teaching credentials. They are also active researchers or scholars making an important contribution to their disciplines; their intellectual engagement with their field will bring your studies to life.
At the same time, many of our teachers have worked recently outside of universities, coming to NTU with up to date understanding of their sectors that will enable you to gain the skills and knowledge to achieve your career ambitions once you have graduated. Their connections help us source the assessed work-based experiences that every single one of our students undertakes whilst they are with us.
We require you to engage in real work in real workplaces, ranging from year-long sandwich courses to shorter placements in the UK or abroad, because typically it improves significantly not only your chances of getting that all important first job but also your academic performance. The relevance and rigour of our programmes, combined with our close links with employers across diverse sectors, underpin the ever-increasing success of our students in the job market. Almost 80% of our 2016 graduates were in graduate entry employment or further study six months after graduation. Around 96%
had found jobs overall.
The settings in which you study are also important and we are constantly extending and improving our facilities. We have spent over £350m in the last ten years and plan to invest another £175m over the next five.
Undergraduate study at NTU is not just about the expertise of our staff, the quality of our programmes or the excellence of our facilities; it is about you making new contacts and creating new networks amongst peers from over 125 countries around the world. We will encourage you to volunteer, play sport, pursue your musical interests, and join some of our 80 or so student societies.
All this in one of the UK’s leading, and most affordable, cities for culture and entertainment.
