Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University is one of the largest and most popular universities in the UK. Nearly 27,000 students study with us across three campuses in Nottingham. We're a modern university with an outstanding reputation for graduate employability. According to the latest DHLE survey, 93% of our undergraduates were in employment or further study, just six months after graduating from NTU.

About Nottingham Trent University

NTU’s main focus for the HEI challenge has been involvement with the Innovative Deployment of Technology (IDT) group. The aim being to share best practice which will ultimately result in an enhanced quality of care for the patient and an improved learning experience for our students.

We aspire to be a truly global university. This aspiration is reflected in our new 2015-2020 internationalisation strategy: Connecting Globally. Many of our students take up the opportunity to study abroad, sometimes taking part in exchanges. We also have around 2600 international students currently studying at NTU.


Research lies at the heart of our activities at NTU, providing international esteem and opportunities for commercial exploitation.  We hold wide-ranging research of international status in world-class facilities. Within the School of Science and Technology, the focus of the Biomedical, Life and Health Sciences Research Centre is health and wellbeing.

Our Biomedical Science research team achieved 100% world-leading or internationally excellent research impact (REF 2014). In addition, our John van Geest Research Centre focusses on two key approaches to the treatment of patients with cancer: improving the diagnosis and management of breast and prostate cancers and developing effective vaccines and immunotherapy that will significantly improve the survival rates and quality of life of cancer sufferers.

World-class research within the School of Science and Technology has recently earned NTU a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education

Our courses

NTU has strong links with Healthcare Partners through its Biomedical Science course provision and many of its students complete work placements as Trainee Healthcare/Biomedical Scientists leading to Registration with the Health and Care Professions Council.

NTU offers Biomedical Science courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, these being BSc Biomedical Science, MSc Biomedical Science and MSc Biomedical Science by distance learning. Of particular relevance to this working group is our MSc Biomedical Science by distance learning course which is completed entirely online rather than by attendance on campus.

All of our Biomedical Science courses are accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science, a hallmark of excellence in teaching, research and excellent facilities for the students as well as being a guarantee of excellent placement opportunities and relevant, up to date course content.
