About the institution

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the UK's largest universities, with over 26,000 students studying across four campuses.

NTU began life as the Nottingham Government School of Design in 1843. Since then, it has expanded significantly and has established a long track record of academic and research excellence, recently winning the Queen’s Anniversary Prize – the highest national honour for a UK university. The University is home to eight academic Schools, and over 150 of our courses are accredited or recognised by external bodies. We have over 200 undergraduate courses for you to choose from, covering a wide range of popular subject areas.

We've recently invested close to £350 million in our estates and facilities, creating a dynamic learning and research environment, building an award-winning Students’ Union at our City Campus, and upgrading our libraries.
NTU has four campuses, each offering an individual student experience. Our City Campus is right in the heart of Nottingham's city centre and is surrounded by plenty of student-friendly bars and clubs as well as great cultural, artistic and leisure activities to keep you occupied.

Our Clifton Campus is located approximately four miles from the city centre. It's a purpose-built greenfield site, with modern facilities and an independent campus feel. Our Brackenhurst Campus is about twelve miles from the city, in the heart of the Nottinghamshire countryside. It's based around a beautiful country hall and lake, with rolling grounds and a rural setting. Our Confetti Campus is based in the centre of Nottingham and is a creative’s dream. You’ll be working with industry-standard equipment, in a cutting-edge facility.

NTU is based in Nottingham, one of the UK's most popular student cities. Over 60,000 students study here and it's not hard to see why; Nottingham is a top shopping, culture and sporting city, as well being one of the top ten most cost-effective cities in the UK, according to the NatWest Student Living Index 2016.
