The University has been teaching art and design since 1843, making it one of the UK’s most established, renowned and respected creative universities – with industry-standard facilities, inspiring studio spaces, expert staff and award-winning students.
Nottingham Business School (NBS) is proud to hold both EQUIS and AACSB accreditation. EQUIS is one of the highest international benchmarks of excellence for business schools, and AACSB is the world’s largest business education network – accreditation again represents one of the highest standards of achievement for business schools worldwide.
Nottingham Law School (NLS) is based in the Chaucer building at the City Campus. The Law School has invested in a mock courtroom, a mock family courtroom and four mooting rooms – all to enhance law students’ mooting and advocacy experience in an authentic environment.
Sports are a big part of NTU. Facilities include a British Olympic Association (BOA) approved environmental chamber, designed to help Olympic athletes acclimatise to extreme competition environments. Students can use it to simulate climates found anywhere in the world, from Everest to Egypt.
Science courses are well-catered for at the University, from teaching and research laboratories for bioscience and chemistry students, to the crime scene training facility for forensic science students. This apparently typical residential property stands on NTU’s Clifton Campus, and has rooms that can be set up to replicate a range of realistic crime scenes. There is also a ballistics laboratory and document examination laboratory.
Astronomy students will be pleased to learn the Clifton Campus holds the Trent Astronomical Observatory. With a 5m revolving dome, the observatory houses a 20ft modified Newtonian telescope and a 14ft Meade LX200 telescope specifically for astronomical observations. The dome can also be transformed into a planetarium. Recognised by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), the observatory can capture satellites orbiting the earth; the moon; the sun; planets; other stars in our galaxy; other galaxies; and even extra-solar planets.
NTU also has a range of award-winning journalism courses on offer, plus access to three radio studios and a functioning TV studio. The largest student newsroom in the UK is based at the City Campus.
