About the institution

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the UK's largest universities, with over 26,000 students studying across three Nottingham campuses. NTU began life as the Nottingham Government School of Design in 1843. Since then, it has expanded significantly and has built a long track record of academic excellence, attracting top academics across multiple disciplines and faculties. The University is home to nine 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 building at our City site and upgrading our libraries. NTU has three campuses, all with their own amenities, accommodation and individual student experience. Our City site is right in the heart of Nottingham's city centre. It's 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.

NTU is based in Nottingham, one of the UK's most popular student cities with over 60,000 students choosing to study here. It's not hard to see why; Nottingham is a top shopping, culture and sporting city, as well as ranking as the third most cost-effective city in the UK, according to the Student Living Index 2015.
