We are proud to be recognised as an inspiring University with an outstanding reputation for teaching, research and community engagement.

Nottingham Trent University’s success can be measured in many different ways. Whether it is our high graduate employment statistics, the international reputation of our academics or our investment into new buildings and facilities, our success is not measured in awards and accolades alone.

Our continual drive for success is one of the many reasons why we’re the most popular university in the UK and have been for the past four years (UCAS acceptance data, 2018-21).
