There is always something going on, that’s good but can be really distracting
Very flexible and provides different assessments ways but doesn’t give any spare time for legal work experience
Was great just expensive
I study on clifton campus, it is a lovely place to study as the facilities and campus are very nice. Everything is very modern and easy to navigate. The system they use for timetables and online work is also simple and easy to use which makes my studying more efficient.
Relaxed structure and nice hours for an ease into uni studying
Nice room with very friendly staff, great wifi and good position.
Nottingham Trent University is in the heart of the city making it a great place to explore whislt on your breaks, as well as a lively atmosphere to explore at night time with your coursemates and societies. Nottingham Trent are always taking on feedback from the students and improving the facilities, as well as making sure we have all the support we need from a safe space at night if we need help on a night out, or to counselling and student mentor support. The tutors are from their professional industry and have first hand experience and knowledge to share with you which makes teaching better as it’s from someone who has had first hand experience in your chosen area of studies.
The course is small but this is a good thing as the tutors have a lot of one to one time with you and you can learn more, the tutors listen to what you want to learn and add in extra lessons in these areas you have requested as well as arranging specialist trips to theatres In London with tours and talks with the professionals. The course hours are minimum but are affective, but this is good as you have a lot of independent study where you can crack on with your work, although it is independent study time the tutors are still around in your studio space to give support.
Glasshouse is a private student halls in association with Nottingham Trent. The rooms are big and spacious with a large desk space and good amount of storage. Kitchens are big as well with a clean look as well as a sitting area for you to socialise. Whenever there was an issue the maintenance team was quick to respond. The staff are lovely and have a laugh with you and let you experience your university halls to the fullest with not being too strict on telling you to quiet down if you have friends over to socialise. The location is great as it’s a short walk to the city centre campus and near the the shopping centre which has a medium sized Tesco in what’s perfect for your shopping.
Really enjoying the Uni, things are difficult back home so whenever I go in I just get a relaxing feel on campus whether that’s in the prayer room or even in a quiet area
Wouldn’t say anything too negative other than it sometimes being difficult to understand the seminar tutors properly as they don’t speak fluent English although that is not their fault
Members of staff are really welcoming and supportive. Makes you feel like your not alone.
The best part would be the lecturers really trying their best to make sure everything is understood and the worst part would be no more online lectures or seminars.
All societies and sports clubs are very inclusive and welcoming, although in my experience there isn’t enough game time during each term for hockey goalkeepers as we have so many but not enough teams.
small seminar classes, meaning more student-professor interaction which is good although 1/3 seminar professors often have a language barrier and students find it hard to understand most of the time.
I like the large kitchens and having a lot of people in the flat as well as the social spaces to mix with other flats. I don’t like the fact that we pay so much a week that there is no sofas in the kitchen to socialise in comfort, it has ended up being that most people stay in their rooms for comfort so therefore socialising in the kitchen is limited and socialising in one room isn’t possible when you have 10 people and are looking for comfort whilst socialising.
I have studied at Nottingham Trent University for over 6 years now and love the student focus feel the campuses have. I had never been to Nottingham before I applied for the university and when I walked on campus the clean environment, open spaces and helpful staff and students really made me feel welcome. As a student with a learning disability university learning support staff were incredibly helpful and supportive in enabling me to achieve top level qualifications by providing me access to assistive technology. However, one thing that could be improved is the weekend and out of term time bus links from Clifton campus to the city center,.
As a masters student Nottingham Trent University expect you to have some level of independent study ability, this is especially applicable when you are considered a mature student. However, the library facilities are fantastic and the workshop sessions can really support you in moving forward on your course. There is a good mix of blended learning where single modules are given in person contact with lecturers and encourage critical thinking where as the dissertation module you are encouraged to conduct your project independently with the support of a personal tutor. Outside of teaching time lectures are incredibly quick to respond to email queries.
Peveral Halls had everything I needed as an undergraduate student and provided a good introduction to independent living away from family however, the accommodation is old and does feel warn - I recommend getting a matras topper! Also top tip - get a door stop so your door stays open so you can socialise with your house mates. The location of the halls on campus was good to really feel the university spirit however getting to supermarkets can be difficult and requires some planning to ensure you can catch the bus at the right time. I recommend using a taxi or going as a group if you know someone with a car - this will save your arms from heavy shopping bag carrying!
Being right in the town centre is perfect and the uni halls are so close to campus so it's easy to get everywhere ! All my lecturers are so supportive and the friends i've made on my course and in my accommodation have made my time here so fun :)
We have three days contact time a week, with tasks set to do in the time off. Weekly tutorials mean lectureres can look over our work and give us advice, and personal tutors help with future application of our course.
Campus is a 5 minute walk from town centre, lots of shops, restaurants, music venues and clubs so lots to do !!
Good room size with lots of storage, big desk and private bathroom which is good !! Communal areas are cleaned weekly which is so helpful and the reception staff are able to help with any problems.
NTU really caters for the students at the university. From teaching quality to student needs, there is a real sense of care of the opinions and wants for the students. This is the best part of the experience here at NTU, the facilities and support are top tier. In terms of how it can be improved, there really isn’t much. It is well run, always things going on, a great students union and amazing campuses. The only thing I can think of is the location of 2 of the campuses, however, the main city campus is superbly located for wherever you are living in Nottingham.
With a huge focus on the business and management department, my course is extremely well run. I have always been amazed by the teaching quality and modules available to take. The option of a gap year in 3rd year is always an exciting opportunity, along with many other extracurricular clubs. The worse aspect of the course and similar courses is that it is majorly core and therefore essential modules, however this is how it is in most universities. There are still a lot of different routes students can take along the 3/4 years in the course.
Although most of the university’s halls are amazing in all aspects, I was late in choosing my options and therefore had to pick the cheapest. It was therefore a little further away with average facilities, however still worth the money, knowing what to expect.
NTU is a great place to study because of the variety of choices it offers in terms of life outside your actual study. Again the course modules are so well suited to actual world happenings and global trends. Nottingham city is so welcoming with its contemporary and classic look and feel. The people are comparatively welcoming although more could be done.
The best part of my course is the course content. It is so tailored to global trends in the field of international development that fitting into the work force after study will not prove so much challenging. What I wish could be better is the duration of study which is currently not sufficient enough to learn all that needs to be learnt
