Fantastic location, I can be hungover and roll outta bed and still be on time for lectures! Super social great for parties as it is very easy for flats to mix! We are great friends with the cleaners and Michelle in particular is a legend!
Very modern, up to date campus which is all within walking distance of the shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. It has a great sense of student life which motivates you daily. I have thoroughly enjoyed being at NTU so far and would recommend it to any social butterfly.
I love nottingham Trent as it is so welcoming and inclusive. Everyone is so friendly and willing to help you with any issues you may have. The freshers team and events were so helpful to make you feel welcome and make friends when you first join and there are always events for courses or societies you can go to with friends that are really enjoyable. The teaching staff are great and so knowledgeable if you do not understand they are willing to help you or give you the support you need to enable you to get the best from your studies. I would thoroughly recommend Nottingham Trent.
Really good, things like support staff and medical support is all in place if needed but obviously the night life is unreal, so many clubs and bars and the societies are all great. You can’t beat a dip in an Ocean Wednesday
Is a very well equipped university, however your experience does tend to rest in which campus you attend. I find that Clifton is a fair way from everything which can mean facilities are limited compared to the city campus. The student union however is definitely one of the best as they hold lots of different events and there are also a range of societies to get involved in. It is definitely a sociable uni although I find Clifton is a little bit out of it compared to city campus again.
NTU is an incredible University in so many ways. I graduate in July after spending three years there as a law student. I couldn’t fault the uni, from their impeccable employability team to the gym facilities. Their student services are excellent with having very positive experiences myself. All tutors in the Law school are amazing and always willing to help.
NTU has everything on your doorstep and everything to make your student life amazing. NTU have passion for you to succeed as an individual not only at university but for when you leave. The student union is one of a kind; it’s made my university experience.
Just finished my final year at uni, met some unbelievable people and friends for life! As well as being pushed to my highest potential preparing myself for the real world! Not to mention so quality blurry nights out!! #ProudToBeNTU
Brackenhurst campus is a beautiful site on a working farm land is a close knit community compared to Clifton and City campus. The SU holds a wide range of events throughout the year to ensure that the stress does not affect the study of the students. There is not as many societies on Brackenhurst but they are slowly increasing and the ones that do exist are multi award winning societies such as the Conservation Society.
My experience so far has been amazing, especially in my first year when I went for a counselling assessment (which got processed really quickly) but got referred the the dyslexia team and they helped me get diagnosed with dyslexia and more, I’ve been struggling for so long and finally understand why thanks to NTU, I would still be struggling if it wasn’t for them. I would recommend NTU to every student not knowing where to study.
Not enough help for struggling students. The societies barely ever run sober socials and the ntsu do not reach out to those in need of help. The university may be rising up but all this means is that the course is good but they will nag you for any missed seminars and not actually help you when you explain why . First years who struggle are really not helped and are urged to drop out so they don't tarnish the university name. Only 4 weeks of 1 hour wellbeing counselling help is not enough.
Overall, I’ve just finished my first year and I could not have had a better time!! I love the uni and everything they offer, my course is amazing and so are all the tutors and lecturers. The city itself Is amazing too, I wouldn’t go anywhere else!
Amazing experience with a close knit community (Brackenhurst). All the staff are friendly and approachable, and the Student Union is amazing with putting on events such as Wellbeing Wednesday to ensure that students are not too stressed.
I have just completed my first year at the Nottingham Trent University and it has been one of tge best years so far. I have really been awed by the ample number of oppoertunities offered by the university through the clubs and societs and also theough the students union. From volunteering opportunities to learning a new skill such as singing, playing an instrument or so on besides academics, all of it under one roof. The university's employability helps one to make a professional looking CV and Cover Letter for part-time jobs. The campus provides various facilities for the student from library, sports , gym and so on. Not to mention the amazing wifi and internet speed. Overall, the university provides a wonderful ambience for studies as well as for living.
Great experience all round, lots of engaging societies for anyone to join, excellent facilities with WiFi over all campuses, Excellent careers service, only thing that lets it down is not hearing as much from the SU as would have liked. But they still put on some great events.
I didnt want to come to Nottingham Trent initially, but I was offered a place through clearing. I came straight down for a tour of the campus and loved it, and accepting the offer was one of the best things I've ever done. I've visited other unis that my friends go to, and they really dont compare to trent. Everything is good here
A really good university, especially compared to Leeds Beckett where I went previously. They could do with spending more money fixing what is already there rather than keep spending on new buildings etc. Definitely need to extend the library too! It is very clear that the university has oversubscribed, so there are students literally crammed into every crevice of every available study space. Not good when you spend upwards of £30,000 on your course alone, excluding maintenance loans.
Joined in September, loved it, the tram system around Nottingham makes it super accessible and easy, and being based in the middle of city centre makes it alot more enjoyable as plenty of places to eat near by and shopping centers
It's an amazing university with a really friendly atmosphere with top-class lecturers who really strive to get the best out of their students and make it enjoyable to learn here. The dedication and commitment to sustainability and environmental issues also makes it an excellent model university.
•campus is completely dead... nothing to do other than walk about or go to the bar. •building work means constant noise and constant dust coming into our rooms, a few people suspiciously becoming ill... maybe due to the dust. •the builders are also loud... with non stop screaming, shouting, whistling, singing, and music playing. •the cleaning team aren’t consistent as our cleaning days have been changed constantly throughout the year. •some of the kitchens are the original older and rest are newer and modern, with more storage. both groups pay the same rent. •security is made up of mostly middle age men who every time some of us encounter them, for something serious or otherwise, they have been creepy, incompetent, and unprofessional. examples: make sexual jokes about women around women, and are slow to answer. -the catering team ALWAYS have drama going on... every single time me and my friends go to get food they are complaining about each other and moaning to each other.
The best university I looked around and the most comforting and welcoming place. The teaching staff is excellent both professional yet understanding and helpful at any time. Sports facilities here are second to none they have a broad amount of sport teams which means what ever ability you are accommodated!!
NTU has been an amazing experience for me and everyone I know so far. The city is amazing. The campuses and facilities are vast, pretty, inspiring and comfortable. I've found the lectures to be excellent and teaching quality very impressive and engaging. Pastoral care is an amazing benefit of NTU specifically, as it is high priority for them and it really shows! I was really struggling and felt very alone and actually got reached out to by the university and offered help and couselling straight away. I was treated so nicely and felt genuinely really cared and understood for which is SO important to me, and I know a lot of people who can say the same! I've heard the same cannot be said for the Uni of Nottingham (I have a lot of friends there now, one who moved to NTU for this reason,) and would genuinely advise one to go to NTU rather than Uni of, even if one is more prestigious and wants higher grades. Everyone knows Trent is a better uni.
Nottingham is a city which feels like home no matter from which country you’re from , everything is at an arms reach even the university , ntu has been a great support with the transition of living in a new country for the first time , the faculty is so friendly and understanding, their way of teaching is impeccable. Student union is very supportive and has great events all week long. We have our employability team which is the best support system I could’ve ever asked for the university has great jobs all year long which any one can apply for , library is 24*7 which is ideal for any student. The wifi is great amazing speed and connectivity. Trent has loads of societies and when I say loads I mean LOADS and the best part is want to form a society of your own? You just need 10 people with you and you can form your own society isn’t that just great? I’ve just completed my first year and I can’t wait to go back after summer break!!!
I studied a Business degree here for 3 years, and overall I was extremely happy with my experience. The facilities were excellent considering the large size of the university. Accomodation is plentiful although there are some better than others. I was a member of a sports society for three years and on committee playing at a high level, all clubs are extremely inclusive and friendly with a very large variety of different abilities. The students union offered plenty of help with both personal and academic issues and are tailored to each individual case. Whether it's for a brief chat, or a lengthy appointment, they were extremely helpful with dealing with enquiries. Great teaching. Main criticism is with the careers team; claim to have vast industry contacts and they definitely do not, though I think it's the same no matter where you go - unless it's Russell Group/Redbrick. SOMETIMES getting good seminar tutors are a matter of luck. That aside, returning here for my master's next year!
Did my first year here doing chemistry and hated every minute of it, there wasn’t much help from the lecturers and the halls weren’t great either. Moved to bournemouth university now and just completed my first year in forensics and I love every minute of it!
The university is very Basic. Small handful of tutors offer support and good teaching the rest are there clearly just because they get paid to . Avoid any uni accommodation out of the city centre (norton court) dangerous area and awful living conditions for the money . Over all a bad uni
Provides almost excellent facilities, my only concern is the clubs and societies as not all are accessible for those with physical disabilities like DMD (although you can argue that you could find a way to get involved in some way even if it might not be competitive).
If you’re going to need help at some point at University then avoid this one, becaue as soon as the staff actually have to step up then you’re considered a problem they shouldn’t have to deal with. One campus is completely isolated and severely lacking in opportunities. The university has really let itself down over the past few years.
I’m at Brackenhurst campus and do equestrian psychology and sport science. I’ve loved every minute of being there, the lectures can’t do enough to help you, the facilities are amazing. Couldn’t have wished for a better university for both social and academic they’ve helped set me up for an amazing career
First Year on Clifton Campus was so great, and the design and facilities on campus were obviously well kept and largely alot of new and beautiful buildings. a real feel good place, cant say much for other campuses but since using the city library in second year can say that the library is really well kept and i love the rooftop garden!
I am really happy with my choice of university because I fit very well here. Coming from another country is difficult experience and NTU really has helped me to feel at home. Moreover, I have chosen to study Digital Media Technology and so far I haven’t been disappointed.
Since being at NTU I have come out of my shell and accepted me for me, with all the support from lecturers and other students, first year has been amazing, whilst the support services at NTU have been out of this word, helping me come to terms with my own mental health as well as a recent diagnoisis, if I wasn’t at NTU, I don’t know whether I would have had all of this! This is the university I chose and it was the best choice I could have made!
Loved the societies and their social night is the best of the week. Really enjoy the atmosphere around NTU and the gym is great too. Plenty of support if I needed it. Great uni to meet friends, have a good night and get a good degree.
The campus is very nice but slightly out of the way being in Clifton and not the city. It has a much better campus feel than the city, however. The student union on campus could do better to entice students to join in with events there.
Nottingham Trent has got to be the University which is the full package! Clifton Campus is a modern, ever improving campus which offers quality facilities and the best working environment, whilst the City and Brackenhurst Campuses too have some of the best facilities going. The nightlife in Nottingham is definitely one of the biggest perks for picking Trent, you're not going to be left disappointed, Ocean Wednesday's, Rock City Thursday's and SU on Saturday's are some of the best night outs in the country and I've never had a bad one at Trent! The wide range of societies and sports clubs which Trent offer is second to none and you're bound to find a club which suits you; aided by a Students Union which works tirelessly to tailor you needs. I can't really fault Trent in any aspects, the student environment is electric and you easily find yourself immersed into a culture where you make friends for life. I'm so glad I chose Trent, and it will be a decision you won't regret
Fantastic uni. All facilities are modern, library is especially impressive, even if you can never get a seat. Most importantly for me though was how amazing the support was there regarding mental illness. This uni went out of its way to make me feel comfortable and happy whilst I was there. Really great place
A great university, especially for creative subjects. Impressive resources that are easy to access, including library, workshops and student union. Some great contacts can be made, and the career/placement team are very helpful.
I really enjoy my uni experience. They gave great support to non-Uk students. The course is well organised with a balance between theories and practical experience Uni gym is good value for money, and there are many societies that you can take part in
I study fashion marketing a personally wouldn’t recommend it. I don’t know who tajes these student satisfaction surveys but I can tell you that the majority of the course isn’t satisfied. The course is boring, repetitive, not based on fashion, and poorly organised.
I personally find the university great, the facilities we have access to are endless. The lecturers on my course are great and have great industry knowledge. The careers team are amazing and are always on hand to help. The library staff are also very helpful.
Everything is so close, easy to get to places. I havent joined any societies but if you play sport theres loads of teams etc. havent really been to the su much apart from su nights in freshers. Student Services are really helpful - they looked over our second year house contract and basically advised us that the company was rubbish, so helped us find a new one. Uni gym is good and good value for money.
Very modern facilities with lots of places to study and socialise Great location in the city and new things happening all the time SU is amazing and has lots of different events throughout the year to suit everyone
Perfection! Everything I could have asked for and more. The new facilities on all 3 campuses are amazing, the library is great but does get busy at exam time. I am in Rugby Union and loved it met lots of mates through it. If you don't think you want to be in a society try lots of different ones when you get there whether its gaming, film, make-up sport,there will be something for you there are hundreds of societies. The student union (NTSU) are very friendly and very approachable.
Would recommend this uni to anybody. All the facilities are clearly shown and you are notified about any events that could help you with your course and future career. The support services and the union provide so much information to keep you informed of any changes to the job market etc to ensure you make the most out of your time at uni. Everything is very close together and all staff are very approachable if you need any help.
The equipment such as PCs and printers outdated. Constantly breaking down with no repairs done out of hrs. This is due to the rental of dated equipment. The library looks great but isn't big enough for all the students in peak times. The whole university is geared with making money as its number one priority. Not the students. The sports clubs are elitist, you need several hundred pounds to take part in them, but be warned they are cliquey The student union is not fit for task it doesn't represent the interests of the students. Regularly overhyping consesions they have achieved from the university, that frankly were going to happen regardless. They have fixed price taxi fairs which are a min of £1 more expensive than normal none student price, unsafe taxis as well The building itself has a over priced bar serving expensive poor quality food along with a expensive Costa. There is a gym but again to use its at a premium. Over subscribed thus hard to use any equipment.
Literally best university choice could of picked. Lovely accommodation, great variety of nightlife, great facilities and everything is walking distance if your in the city campus. Even though your in the city, all the uni facilities and uni accommodation are extremely close together so its like your own student village.
Great all in all- the SU is amazing and obviously the best in the UK- seriously recommend, the societies and clubs are there all year round so if you are interested in joining somewhere new I recommend joining a few societies maybe sports clubs.
Clifton Campus is like a small village. You are minutes away from the student shop which houses your every need. Minutes away from the student union, where you have the bar and Costa. Not as expensive as you may think. All money goes back into the university to fund projects. It is a lovely campus and even easy on the eye. Everything you can possibly want is on campus or just around the corner, or a small bus journey away.
New pavillion area is great. The point is as good as can be tbh- good place to socialise with friends. The library is a nice place to go to be alone and also to get you away from your depressing room. Joining clubs and societies is essential, however not enough is done to encourage people to join them
It's quite modern and has quite good facilities however the library is way too small especially during exams season , they should really extend it a part from that, the architectural structure is great and the lecture theatres are pretty
It is a really great university with great surroundings and clubs to join. it is very inclusive and good to make friends. However, i find the club options are very limited to some extent with only one dance club and not too many general interest clubs to join. I would love to see more of a range in dances, however the sports is very varied.
Trent is an amazing uni with graduates performing higher than a lot of Russell group universities. The student body is both friendly and fun and the facilities on offer are second to none. The best decision of my life was coming here!
Great vibrant city campus, bustling with life. On the way to campus buildings, many places to stop in for amenities such as food and drink, like the indoor SU Costa Coffee, the SU bar with the friendliest staff or the NTSU shop. Happily sit in the SU quite often. The library is 24/7 and always has a free computer somewhere.
Being a student at Nottingham trent has provided me with so many things. I really enjoy my course, I love the student union and there is a massive range of societies to get involved in, and the student club nights always offer a great night out!
I love life at Trent uni! The career aspects are massive and there is always support available from tutors. The su accommodates for people of all interests. Only problem is that there isn't enough computers in the library
Very good uni for anyone who is unsure, especially if you're on city campus! Only rated societies three stars because I was part of creating it rather than it already being established - every other club and society looks great!
Its is an amazing uni but as I am on brackenhust campus we doint benefit from the clubs and societies In the bigger campuses and there is not transport bitweensites if you want to go to main site it is a 40min buss ride costing £7 and to clifton its is more like 2h costing £14+ which makes it impossible to join any of the sports clubs there. The teaching level is excellent. The students are great but the wi fi at brack will direct you to the "students com" website all the time which is annoying. The library is 24h and has plenty if PCs and the bar is cheep and close however it is on the small side and could possibly have a wider selection if beers.
The campus (clifton) is being renovated and it seems this year lots of new improvements are being made.Also the libaray was made 24hr so this means there is no hassle to leave which is idea in stressful exam and deadline period. Sport societies and clubs are a big thing at trent and there are loads to choose from in every genre. The Su is good it offers jobs to some students has cheap food with lots of options and offers a couple good night's out a week as well as quiz events and table tennis it's a nice social place and I think this is why makes it inviting.Being a first year I haven't had much experience of career opportunities yet but will be looking into them soon and there are clear signs and places to go. The wifi is good thought campus there is ntu wifi which is good and all you need is yur uni login though only downside is the wifi in halls student com can be a bit temperamental. The uni it's self is fun and welcoming my teaching experience has been great and the organisati
