Nottingham Trent University
About the Company
We’re building the university of the future – a forward-looking institution that changes lives. We empower and inspire our community of students, staff and alumni by valuing their ideas, celebrating their achievements, and creating opportunities. Locally proud but internationally focused, we’re committed to building lasting academic, social and professional relationships. How are we doing this? We’re doing it through the £450 million investment we’ve made in our buildings and facilities since 2003. We’re doing it through our hands-on, work-focused curriculum, which puts jobs at the heart of learning. We’re doing it through our ground-breaking employability initiatives, and the relationships we’ve built with industry leaders at home and abroad. We’re doing it through the innovative support we provide to businesses; through our award-winning research; and through our global network of alumni, bringing their own ideas and opportunities. We’re doing it through the expert teaching and support staff we continue to bring in to the University. How are we being recognised for all this?
• We’re one of only 59 institutions to be gold-rated in the government’s recent Teaching Excellence Framework, putting us in the top third of UK universities for outstanding teaching and learning.
• The 2016 National Student Survey revealed that 93% of our students would recommend studying here.
• The WhatUni Student Choice Awards confirmed NTU as the UK’s best university for international students in 2016. • We’re proud recipients of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize – the UK’s highest honour for research activities.
• In 2016, we topped the People & Planet University League for the third time, cementing our reputation as the UK’s greenest university.
