Hey!

I'm Chelsea, 20, and I've just finished my first year at Nottingham Trent. I study animation in the department or art and design and live/study on the city campus.

If anyone has any questions about the university or Nottingham itself and wants to hear from a current student about it, feel free to sling them my way!

I think it's just a bit of a laugh. You get the odd person that takes it too seriously, but these are few and far between. The NTU vs UoN bar crawls and varsity are good fun and it brings together the students of each uni to rally behind their teams which is nice

I'm going to study my 1st year of Graphic design in NTU and I was looking to buy a laptop that will be good for all the programs used and that could handle the uni demands without issues. I went to see the Postgraduate exhibition this July and saw everything was exposed on Apple products but I am not sure if a Macbook is the best choice. Is there a well organised access to the computers as the University adverstises? and, what computers have you seen in you classmates/would be ideal for the art department courses in your opinion?

Hi! I'm not quite sure what software they use up there, but it's in the same building I study in just on a different floor. They do have Macs in the building that you can use, but there are windows computers available everywhere as well. Chances are at least part of the reason the work was shown on Macs is because the screens are bigger/clearer and happened to be available in the space the exhibition was put on in. Contact the course team and ask them - they'd be your best bet. In mine, we pretty much all use windows laptops/computers. I have both a macbook and a lenovo windows laptop but tend to do my coursework on the latter because the screen is bigger and that's what I work on at uni. A girl that I met who was doing her masters in graphic design worked on both, but had a windows laptop to work on outside of uni

I’m thinking of studying Graphic Design at NTU, but I heard that there is a lot of racism there. Is that true?

Hi!
I currently study Graphic Design at NTU and I can assue you I've not come across any racism or problems relating to this. There is an entire buildng focused on Internationals and NTU welcomes anyone. Racism of any kind will be penalised.

Honestly, they're all pretty sociable being on campus. Byron is often seen as the 'party halls' so sociable people are often attracted to it, but they're all nice and social and in Freshers week Freshers reps will go around the flats and help everyone get to know eachother and get ready for a night out. There are no common rooms in the city campus halls but it'll be what you make it

There may be more around, but Rock City is the first one that comes to mind! Every Saturday they do an alternative night, and on the first Friday of each month they do a alternative 90s night. There's also regularly concerts put on by alternative bands.

  1. Hi

    I am a student of Nottingham Trent University

    I would like to know how easy is it to change course in Nottingham Trent University if you want to change course? I'm doing financial mathematics. I was told I meet the criteria in business in my UCAS application times. I'm 100% meet the criteria for Business School Studies

    Will they let me in and how hard is it switching from a Mathematics department to a business department if there are currently no spaces left ?

    Do I need to wait for someone to dropout first and take the space to be filled ? Will they let me in this year ? I don't want to wait a whole year if there is one empty space available

    How does it work and how hard is it to let you change and will they let you if there is an extra space ?

Rock City, though less so on student nights, is definitely a shout. Mojo too!
