Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is a leading public research university in Nottingham, England. It was founded as a new university in 1992, although its roots go back to 1843 with the establishment of the Nottingham Government School of Design which still exists within the university today. It is the 13th largest university in the UK (out of 169) with 33,255 students split over four different campuses.
The university has “one of the best employability records of any university in England and Wales”. It maintains close ties to over 6,000 businesses and 94% of students progress to full-time employment or further education within six months of graduating. These companies include Microsoft, Toyota, Boots, Experian and Rolls Royce. Representatives from companies hold talks with prospective placement students or those considering careers after graduation.
Nottingham Trent University was awarded University of the Year in 2019 by The Guardian. It was also ranked number 12 in the UK by the Guardian in 2020, and 600 globally by the QS World University Rankings 2013.
