Why Study at NTU?
Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the biggest and most popular universities in the UK offering a number of benefits for our postgraduate students.
NTU are proud to have been named University of the Year, at the Times Higher Education awards.
This is the latest award we’ve received in a year packed with recognition and prizes. In 2017, we were named as the UK’s Modern University of the Year (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide), whilst receiving a gold rating in the national Teaching Excellence Framework.
NTU has been one of the biggest climbers in The Guardian University Guide 2019, focusing on student satisfaction and graduate employment. NTU has now risen to 16th place in the overall table - a jump of 18 places from last year. We’ve also recently achieved our highest ever ranking in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. A climb of ten places to 37th in this year’s guide caps a remarkable year for us.
Many of our courses are designed to meet industry needs and standards, making them easy to translate to the working world. This is why approximately 97% of postgraduates from NTU are employed or continuing with their studies within 6 months of finishing their degrees*. (*DLHE Survey Postgraduate results 2016-17).
- We are flexible – As well as full time courses, we have distance learning, block-release and part-time study options to enable you to combine further study with work or family commitments.
- Strong links with companies worldwide – This keeps our courses cutting edge in a rapidly changing world, as well as offering a range of placement opportunities ranging from a few weeks to a year in industry, all aimed at improving your employability.
- Expert teaching – Academic supervisors, tutors and lecturers are leading practitioners in their fields and engaged in world class consultancy and global research.
- Plenty to get involved with – We have over 110 societies to help make the most of your student experience; including everything from astronomy to volunteering and from fashion to cocktails.
- Guaranteed accommodation – All three of our campuses provide high-quality on-site accommodation in a range of furnished self-catering residences offering en-suite or shared bathroom facilities. We have accommodation, including purpose built studio accommodation, specifically for postgraduate students.
- Personalised and specialist careers advice – With a dedicated careers consultant for each school and a specialist consultant for postgraduate research students, there is great support for you throughout your time at NTU.
What Can I Study?

The Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education was awarded to the University in November 2015. It is the highest national honour for a UK university and recognises the University’s world-class research.
