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The equipment such as PCs and printers outdated.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
