Keep Talking to NTU!
From Nottingham Trent University:
With everything that’s going on in the world, we know that your students might not be getting the same opportunities to engage with us for advice and support.
They can still stay in touch with NTU, though. In these unprecedented times, we wanted to give them a direct line to the University – and that’s why we’ve set up live chats with our community of NTU reps. It’s a chance for your students to talk to our students (and staff), and find out about:
- life and learning on campus
- Nottingham’s highlights, from the people who know it best
- course content, professional placements and work opportunities
- fees and finance
- our entry requirements, and how to apply to NTU
