A Place to Call Home

It’s more than just a city centre
Looking to stretch your legs and grab a breather from
city life? Jump on a bus (or pile into a car) and you’ve
got these gems right on your doorstep:
10 minutes — Wollaton Park. This sprawling, deer-filled
estate sits just to the west of the city centre. The perfect
place for a summer’s twilight picnic or some sledging in
the snow, it’s also where you’ll find Wollaton Hall (aka
Wayne Manor in Christopher Nolan’s Batman films).
20 minutes — East Midlands Airport. As if Nottingham’s
not enough, you’ve also got an international airport
nearby. From EMA, you can fly direct to Barcelona,
Berlin, Ibiza, Kos, Rhodes, Reykjavik, Prague or
New York City — plus over 70 other international
30 minutes — Newstead Abbey. The jaw-dropping
ancestral home of Lord Byron, one of Britain’s most
celebrated Romantic-era writers. His estate includes
a man-made lake with cannon emplacements, where
Byron would stage his own naval battles and flex over
his poet pals.
40 minutes — Sherwood Pines. Nottinghamshire’s most
tranquil attraction, lose yourself amongst a vast forest
of soaring pine trees, dappled sunshine and constant,
ankle-high mist. It’s also a only a short jump from the
world-famous Sherwood Forest.
50 minutes — the Peak District. OK, so it’s technically
Derbyshire, but the Peaks are still within easy reach for
a weekend trip. Visit Bakewell and Buxton, or roam the
same bare and rolling hills that inspired Wordsworth,
Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte. A lovely day out.
                                                                 Nottingham Castle

NTU life isn’t about being ‘a student’ at
‘a university’. It’s about you: your journey,
your specific needs, and your individual
goals. From mentoring opportunities and
personalised learning to award-winning
student support, we’ve got you covered.

Teaching, Learning and Living

           and Living
           There’s an army of people behind the scenes
           here — hundreds of advisers, administrators,
           coaches and mentors, all committed to
           making your time at NTU as comfortable,
           happy and productive as it can be.

           We want you to feel supported, we want you
           to feel empowered, and we want your journey
           to be about you — whatever that journey
           might look like, and wherever it may take you.

                                         To us, it’s about that perfect balance between theory
                                         and hands-on practice. It’s about our teachers having
                                         the knowledge and experience to support your vision
                                         and enthusiasm. It’s about encouragement, in and
                                         outside of the classroom; the freedom to decide your
                                         own journey; and the expertise to help you reach your
                                         It’s about opportunities and connections — whether

                                         It’s about a shared sense of confidence, purpose and

The NTU Student
Learning at a new level, managing      Newton builiding study space
your own workload, juggling
deadlines — there’s no denying that
university life has its challenges.
To ease the transition, we’ve
developed the Student Dashboard,
an award-winning online tool for
our staff and students. It helps you
manage your own learning, making
sure your studies stay on track.
The higher your engagement,
the better your likely degree
result; the Dashboard illustrates
that engagement and helps you
measure your own progress. It’s a
great indicator of how you’re doing
— and how you could be doing
even better.

Support at
Every Stage

     There’s no denying it — uni life can take some adjusting
     to. It’s probably your first time living away from home,
     and while independence is just what you’ve been
     waiting for, it comes with its own challenges.
     Our job is simple: to make sure you can complete your NTU journey in comfort and with
     confidence. Sometimes, life gets in the way — so if you hit any bumps in the road, just know
     that we’ve got your back. From award-winning student support and easy-access wellbeing
     provisions to our intuitive student mentoring scheme, we’re here to make sure that every one
     of our students get the same crack at success.

Support at Every Stage

Student Support
Our reputation for student
satisfaction isn’t based on great
teaching and learning alone — it
comes from treating you as an
individual, and we’re especially
proud of our dedicated support

university experience and maximise

to tell us when you apply. This
information will help us to ensure
the appropriate support is in place

Students’ Union
Once you’ve enrolled on your course, you’re officially a
member of Nottingham Trent Students’ Union (NTSU).

For generations of students, the Union has been a
huge part of the NTU experience. NTSU’s buildings are
places to relax, be heard, meet new people, and try new
things. Beyond the classroom, you’ll find lots of support
staff, mentors and elected reps, who are all dedicated
to making your time here the very best it can be.
