Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is in the East Midlands of England, 200km north of London. It is spread across three campuses, with two in Nottingham and one 22km outside the city. Its origins date back to 1843 and it was founded as Trent Polytechnic (later Nottingham Polytechnic) in 1970 before gaining university status in 1992. It is one of the largest universities in the United Kingdom, serving more than 24,000 students, of which 5% are international.

Nottingham Trent University is best known for Art and Design, Fashion and the creative arts, but it also hosts one of the UK’s largest law schools. NTU recently received one of the biggest grants to a post-1992 university in order to continue its work on cancer diagnosis and therapy. The university also does well in sports, with strong performances in the British University and College Sport leagues and a large sports centre on the Clifton campus.

Services for International Students

The International Office at Nottingham Trent University offers a wide range of services for international students. Before the beginning of term there is an airport pickup service from nearby airports and a course induction for all students. International students who want or need to improve their English can take pre-sessional English lessons ranging from 6 to 30 weeks long. At Nottingham Trent International College, students can take foundation courses for undergraduate or postgraduate degrees.

The International Student Support Service runs numerous events for international students, and also helps to organise visas and student support.


Currently, Nottingham Trent University is ranked 61st by The Times and Complete University Guides and 73rd in The Guardian University Guide. It performed well in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, with 74% of research considered to be of an ‘international status’ and 8% ‘world leading’. Communication, Culture and Media Studies, Social Policy, Engineering, and Biomedical Sciences produced the best results.


International students are guaranteed a room for at least one year in university accommodation. There are 4200 self-catering rooms available either on or close to the campus, most of which are en suite. These are generally arranged in flats or houses, with private bedrooms and a shared kitchen, although studio apartments and shared rooms are also available.

Cost of living is very reasonable in Nottingham compared to many other parts of the UK, meaning that private accommodation can be found cheaply and easily through one of the university’s recommendations or house hunting days. International students also have the option to stay with a local family during their time at university.


Nottingham Trent University has three campuses. Located just north of Nottingham city centre, the City Campus offers subjects such as business and management, law, social sciences and art & design. The Clifton Campus is home to Nottingham Trent University's Schools of Arts and Humanities, Education, and Science and Technology, and is about twenty minutes by bus from the city centre. Home to the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences, Brackenhurst has its own dairy farm and licensed bar. It is situated near Southwell. There is a regular late-night bus service which links all three campuses.

Nottingham is approximately two hours by train from London. Students make up 10% of the population lending a student-friendly feel to the city. Living costs fall below the national average, making it an affordable place to live. Furthermore, the city currently has one of the highest rates of job creation in the UK. It is famed for its connection to the legend of Robin Hood and tradition as a centre for manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution.
