What Can I Study?
We offer over 200 taught postgraduate courses and a variety of research degree options across our eight academic schools.
Research informs all of our courses and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (2021) results, 86% of NTU's research impact was assessed as either 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent'.
To us, research is about more than writing papers and proposing new ideas. By daring to think differently, we’re disrupting the research landscape and finding the answers to the questions that really matter. From social media addiction to sustainable farming, we’re inspiring the brightest minds to rise up and find solutions to some of the most significant global challenges facing society.
We have a range of funding possibilities on offer such as scholarships and bursaries. These have helped hundreds of students study at NTU and achieve their ambitions. Scholarships and bursaries are awarded to students on eligible courses who can demonstrate excellent achievement, passion and dedication to their studies. You may be able to take advantage of our 20% Alumni Discount, which most current and past NTU students are eligible for.
