Nottingham Trent is one of the UK's leading universities for graduate employment. Approximately 97% of full- and part-time students graduating from the university in 2003 entered employment or went on to further study within six months of graduation. The Sunday Times University Guide, September 2004, states that Nottingham Trent has "one of the consistently lowest rates of graduate unemployment of any university".
This strength derives from our close links with over 6,000 employers across the world. Many of our students spend up to a year on work placements, gaining skills and experience that give them a real competitive edge at graduation.
Our strong links with employers make us ideally placed to design and deliver courses relevant to society?s future needs.
Our goal is to be the university of choice for students who want to gain the skills, knowledge and self confidence to succeed in their chosen profession, within an environment committed to student support and the student learning experience.
In the 2004 institutional Quality Assurance Agency review, Nottingham Trent received the highest commendation for its consistent commitment to supporting students and their learning, for its student-centred approach, and for the way NTU continues to drive forward the employability agenda to the benefit of its students and other stakeholders.
We attract students from across the globe and our total student population of around 26,000 is made up of approximately 21,000 undergraduates and 5,000 postgraduates.
Our teaching is underpinned by strong research. All of our research units were rated as nationally or internationally important in the last Research Assessment Exercise, and four gained the coveted '5' Grade. This result makes NTU one of the leading ?new? universities in the UK.
Our entry requirements are consistent with our high expectations and we remain one of the most popular universities in the country in terms of applications received.
