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’.
