Nottingham Trent University is one of the largest universities in the U.K. We have approximately 27,000 students (HESA 2014 / 15) and have invested £350 million since 2003 across our three campuses to create an inspiring learning environment.

NTU is one of the most sustainable universities in the world and we have been awarded Green Flags for our Brackenhurst and Clifton campuses. We offer great employment prospects to students at all levels. 94% of our graduates and 95% of our postgraduates are employed or engaged in further study six months after leaving (according to DLHE undergraduate and postgraduate survey results 2014 / 15).

A massive 93% of our students would recommend studying at NTU (National Student Survey 2016). We’re ranked in the top 20 universities in the UK for our teaching quality (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2016). Our enthusiastic, experienced staff work hard to provide the best learning experience possible.

We're proud of the quality of student experience we provide – we're committed to ensuring that your time living and learning in Nottingham is everything it should be. We welcome students and staff from over 160 countries, and we’ve got 200 partner institutions in 35 countries.

Nottingham is a world-class student destination, with its thriving arts scene and top shopping, international sports facilities and award-winning nightlife. According to the 2015 Natwest Student Living Index, it’s also the UK’s third most cost-effective student city.

As most exchange students enter Year 2 of a program at NTU, we require that applicants have some basic coursework in the subject area - this coursework must be indicated on the student's transcript. NTU ISEP Coordinator will review a transcript along with home course content to ensure the student meets pre-requisites for year 2 modules. Unlike the American university system, at NTU you cannot generally study across programs or departments. For students interested in a broad offering, the department of Arts & Humanities is recommended - ISEP students can mix and match from the modules.
