Established in 1843, Nottingham Trent University has a long history of unlocking potential, breaking down barriers, and making a real difference to lives around the world.
With over 40,000 students and staff spanning five university sites, Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the largest and most influential higher education institutions in the country. We are a university that is committed to driving forward meaningful change and we have received a wide range of prestigious awards for our research, dynamism and innovation.
We are proud to be recognised as a university that opens its arms to all. A quarter of our students come from households with a combined income of £15,000 or less, and we were the first university to sign up to the Government’s social mobility pledge, demonstrating our commitment to improving the prospects of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
This is NTU. This is University, reimagined.
We’re creating the university of the future.
- A university that invites, includes, and listens — where partnerships are valued, knowledge is shared, and opportunities are accessible for everyone.
- A university where learning is tied directly to industry needs: where each award and accolade is an endorsement of our everyday teaching standards, values, and methods.
- A university that disrupts the status quo; that dares to ask challenging questions, in the name of insight and progress.
- A university where research is applied and not abstract — where it supports teaching, delivers meaningful answers and improves real lives in real-time.
- A university with the power and the purpose to transform, creating better people and not just better graduates.
The University of the Future is a project for the present, built on six core principles. Here’s how those principles work at NTU.
