    What is the opinion on Nottingham Trent?

    I am looking to do Financial Mathematics there next year and am going to put my application in next week or so.

    So far my list is as so -

    University of Sheffield - Financial Mathematics, said they would like to see my application (very happy with the service)
    Nottingham Trent - Financial Mathematics, again very prompt reply and would like to see my application (very happy with the service)

    Others are
    Loughborough - I would need to do another Foundation year to get onto the course.
    Leicester - not replied to me as yet with regards to the course.

    How would prospective employers see a degree from Nottingham Trent? I understand I won't be a "standard" graduate and will therefore have to fight harder for places but a really good university should help to go some way! I know Nottingham Trent is an ex-poly, so a good idea or not?

    its...ok..but not up there with sheffield and leicester, the welfare services are good, accomodation is nice..but ive heard the teaching isn't the best. Probaby best to tru and have it as a 'back up'

    I'm certainly going to apply and see what happens, if I don't get in anywhere (I'm not doing standard A Levels, I'm an Access Student which I would have never took if I'd known that A Levels just seem better regarded) I'm not afraid of getting my A Levels done and perhaps retaking Maths and Science GCSEs (I got C grades in both - due to me really not giving a damn about school - had a really miserable school life could have done a million times better lol) to get into a better university because I have finally found something I want to do, just means I'll be nearly 23 when I started the actual undergraduate course!

    Ive always heard that sheffield (especially hallam) was rubbish... i went to an open day (a long time ago now) and it was a load of pants lol. Trent is where you want to be! Nottingham is an awesome city. I used to work in Leicester and its not very nice...
