Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a public teaching and research university in Nottingham, United Kingdom. It was founded as a new university in 1992 from the existing Trent Polytechnic (later Nottingham Polytechnic), however it can trace its roots back to 1843 with the establishment of the Nottingham Government School of Design which still exists within the university today. Nottingham Trent University is one of the largest universities in the United Kingdom with around 24,000 students split over three different campuses.

Nottingham Trent University was formed by the amalgamation of many separate institutions of higher education. It originated from the Nottingham Government School of Design founded in 1843. In 1945, the Nottingham and District Technical College was established. In 1958, Nottingham Regional College of Technology opened and in 1959, the Nottingham College of Education began at Clifton. In 1964, Nottingham Regional College was opened and in 1966, the original Nottingham College of Design was linked with the Regional College. Together they merged and the institution was upgraded to Polytechnic status in 1970 to become ‘Trent Polytechnic’. In 1975, it amalgamated with Nottingham College of Education and in 1988, the official name changed to ‘Nottingham Polytechnic’. Under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 all Polytechnics and some higher education colleges became eligible for full university status; at this point, the institution officially became ‘Nottingham Trent University’.

"Having a good time so far "

By: pip214. BSc (Hons) Forensic Biology FT

My experience at Nottingham Trent so far has been so good. I'm not going to say its the best because everyone is different and will enjoy different aspects of the university. I know some people loving and hating their time here, so this will be from my point of view. This is a great university for studying Science and I have heard that the languages aren't bad either. The university work catches up with you if you don't keep on top of it. So work hard, remember your going to get a degree. Enjoy yourself, the key is to balance your time.

The accommodation is so expensive on campus. Next year me and four friends are moving into a house together which is so much cheaper in comparison. This year the rent has drained my money but you do get an en-suite which is a bonus, I really didn't want to share a bathroom. I also don't have to pay a parking permit because I ride a motor bike, it's so much cheaper that way around.

The university have so many different clubs and societies ranging from go-karting to bell ringing. I am a member of archery. It's a cool sport and met lots of like minded people. Check it out next year.

The Student Union make a massive effort at the start of the year when it comes to welcome events. I would recommend going to Double Vision on a Friday. Your meet loads of other students here. The ratio in Nottingham is crazy, but thats something your have to come check out for yourself.

"The boy from Clifton "

By: Jamiee_x

Being from Clifton, the university is easily accessible for me as I am a commuter. I have just finished my last module so what better way to make a full review on my whole time at NTU. The university is surrounded be great people. The lecturers go above and beyond there job role, devoting their spare time to student problems and issues. I have had their full support the entire time I have been studying here and I couldn't ask for more. Not only this the course is really engaging, highlight key skills we need to develop and what employers desire. I feel like I am much better prepared for full time work, thanks to my time here.

The campus is really nice, with the SU having a brand new building. There is literally something for everyone to get involved with. I am slightly older so I dedicated 80% of my time to my course. it's all about finding a balance. This balance suited me perfectly as I wanted to graduate with a good grade.

"Modern University  "

By: Tom_H10. BA (Hons) Business Management and Accounting & Finance FT

I thought Nottingham Trent was an average university. I would recommend looking into the course details in great depth. I spoke to members of university staff on an open day I attended but the information I provided about the course that day was very different from the reality. So make sure you look at there website in great depth before making your choice.

Besides the course, the university is very good with lots of facilities available to students. Trent is very modern compared to the university of Nottingham. The night life is amazing especially on wednesday when both uni's have there student night, this is not to be missed! You have to at least try it out. You won't regret it. Nottingham is very diverse culturally and the girl to boy ratio is amazing.

If my course was like the one I was sold at the open day I really wouldn't have nothing to complain about.

"NTU Review "

By: BoharaBA (Hons) Business Management and Accounting & Finance FT

I have been studying at NTU for three years now. The first two at the university, whilst my current year on a work placement. When choosing universities, I wanted a big city with good night life and a uni with good sports teams and applied courses. NTU has fulfilled all of these desires.

Whilst I have found the odd module in my business and finance course dull, I have found the majority interesting and relevant to the real world. There are plenty of contact hours and most of the lecturers are easy to get along with and very helpful when it comes to coursework/exam prep and feedback.

In terms of applying for placements, the uni was extremely helpful, offering advise on enhancing CVs, interview techniques and also having links to many large companies which will set aside places for NTU students.

The university is right into the city centre which is a great place for students. Having more pubs per square mile than anywhere else in the UK is a major factor to this whilst numerous shops and plenty of cheap restaurants also helps.

I would fully recommend Trent and I am looking forward to getting back there for my final year.
