Nottingham Trent university is a great place to study with so much help and support from peers student reps and aslo the fantastic team of student union reps
I'm a part time student but when I'm hear everyone tries there hardest to get the best out of each and everyone such a great place to be. i dont have any negative comments
It's just amazing
Great, they might require to work on arranging internship for people
The worst part so far in my experience was the fact that my department mentor did not take any action seriously. Then the good things about this university are nice environment, accessible facilities, various of activities to attend, Global Lounge, and people.
The department leader did not take action seriously. While in the same time, there is a brilliant construction lecturer who's trying to support every aspect in the class. They create such a friendly atmosphere.
So many great events and opportunities put on for students. Exceptional support for students through su services. Well rounded for everyone’s interests and hobbies
Great course, with a diverse learning curriculum. Great support from students and staff also
The worst aspect for me is the student support. At the beginning of my second year, I suffered two bereavements in my family, one of which being my father, the other my uncle- this was also during lockdown, keep in mind. I tried my best my best to continue the year as best I could but was not reaching my expectations as I developed extreme anxiety and depression. This led to me reaching out to my head of course and explaining my situation. There was little sympathy and no help or advice given by her. I was then passed about, given several different emails to contact for support, all leading to the advice that I should talk to the Chaplin on campus. No professional mental health service was offered nor was any academic support. My grades continued to decline and so I reached out once again to ask if I could retake the year so as to achieve better grades. I was told that it would be possible but only for the modules I hadn’t yet completed, so I should not hand in any more work. My request would be handed to ‘the board’ and they would decide if it would be possible for me to retake. This was just after Christmas and I did not hear back about whether I could return to university until September, meaning I could not make arrangements for accommodation and the limbo only worsened my anxiety and distrust of the university. Only rubbing salt in the wound, they also limited my grade to a low third meaning that I would have been better off sticking year two out the first time around, if I wanted better grades. No outreach has been made to me since, no academic support offered and in fact, while this is the most egregious error of theirs, it is not the only one I could talk about; for example not registering me on the course until I have shown up to class and had to complain about not being registered, two years in a row. The best part of the university, for me, is when I don’t have to go in. Even opening emails or logging in online has become a source of painful anxiety for me over the past two years, thanks to the apathy and disregard shown.
I am often placed in science labs for my English seminars. English, as a subject, does not rely on needing top facilities as some other subjects do but being in the right environment does encourage a better focus on the content. I have never once been in a lecture theatre, understandably so due to COVID, though online facilities that are offered as alternatives can be confusing to navigate and have led to me missing or misunderstanding some content at first before getting to grips with it, although in some respects it can still feel clunky. The library on the Clifton campus, where I spend my time, is lacking in the way it is set out and, in my opinion does not offer enough spaces for studying quietly, or with a larger group. The areas are not very well divided and it leads to the space feeling somewhat incoherent. This is in comparison to another university library I have spent a significant amount of time in- MMU- where rows of books are clear and well labelled/signed and there are plenty of well defined spaces for working in a variety of ways.
Nottingham, really is a city with something for everyone. Always bustling but with quieter nooks for you to tuck yourself away into, if you so choose, there are a great variety of shops restaurants and bars- from big brands all the way down to independent establishments. Getting about is a doddle with fantastic public transport, from trams to trains or a good old bus. With so many events and goings, Nottingham is a buzzing student hub that doesn’t overwhelm or intimidate like some bigger cities might.
The student union at Nottingham Trent Is amazing, I believe their work and commitment has made my time at uni the best, the events are incredible and freshers weeks keep getting better and better. The support available is also very good, and I feel I would always know where/ who to go to for what. The university is very welcoming and makes everyone feel part of a community. I love it here
The best parts of the course is the interesting content and engaging lecturers, however, due to covid I feel the time spent working with lecturers has been minimal and I haven’t gained the best experience
The location is great but the cost could be abit lower
The NTSU provides amazing facilities and entertainments for students and I really believe they are best in the country
Love my course and the option to do a placement has really helped in my graduate job search
Everything’s close together, friendly and cheap
Loved my first year halls would not have stayed anywhere else everything was perfect
As a student who goes between city and brack for the last 3 years I can say that NTSU always deliver. Whether it’s reduced fairs for busses or getting the price of parking permits scrapped/reduced. Also being a freshers rep and part of the students union for the last 2 years I’ve seen first hand the amount of help and feedback NTSU takes on board. The door to the office is always open if anyone wants to come and speak to the officers/staff. They really do listen to everyone’s feedbacks and act accordingly to make sure that the SU provides students with the best experience they can
Being taught with a mix of online/in person was a struggle due to covid. But in person lectures fully allow you to grasp the content. You are able to pick into the lectures minds to find further explanations of topics as well as on practical days able to go over and over the stations as much as needed. Course hours are longer than most courses but that is expected. Lecturers are amazing (even though we have lost some staff).
Value for money - the fact a new build and an old build costs near enough the same for a large difference in amenities. Having all wifi, hot water stc included is a benefit. For being on campus it is brilliant, but having to pay £130+ to park your car there all year is a pain. Shops are far and wide to the local large supermarkets (without going to the local village for overpriced). Food shops can get delivered and there is a shop on campus for basic things (again expensive). Connection to city by bus so makes it easy to get over that way if you don’t drive
Best thing is that they’re really supportive and understanding when it comes to mental health or anything else that could be effecting your studies. However, some of the tutors aren’t particularly inspiring in any way which can be disheartening.
Contact hours and general teaching is subpar. There’s a few exceptions but overall I’d like there to be more time actually teaching and going into uni.
Most is that it was really close to a shopping park and gym but it is really far from the city
More transport links on the weekend to university (clifton campus) would be great
Good research environment and exemplary supervisors
