Do you want to study at one of the best universities in the UK and benefit from their top-notch career services? PrepAdviser’s guest speakers from Nottingham Trent University (NTU) talk about the school’s strategy for the upcoming academic year and the overall student experience in terms of learning and career progression.

How will fall semester start?

Dr Alex Hiller, Head of Postgraduate and Executive Education at NTU, focused on the student experience in the upcoming academic year. Next year will be a little different in terms of what NTU does, he said, adding that “it’s not going to be worse in any way to what we have done before”.

So what will be different? NTU has moved the start date of some of its programs to January. Also, there will be some online study (1/3), but the majority of learning (2/3) will be in the classroom. For those who will not be able to get to the UK in time for the September start for various reasons, the university is working on an online version of the first semester of the Master’s in Management program. This means that participants will be able to take the first semester purely online, and then come and join their classmates in Nottingham for the other two semesters. 

What will my learning and teaching be like?

Here are some of the things that will be different:

  • You will be kept in a consistent group in each semester. Room layouts have been configured to allow collaborative learning safely.
  • One-to-One meetings and English language support classes will be conducted in Microsoft Teams.
  • Consultancies and other business-facing work may be conducted virtually.
  • Buildings will be signpostedand zoned, with hand sanitizer stations and regularly cleaned.

Employability: investing in you and your future

Alex then passed over to Graham Whyborn, Career Consultant at NTU, who is part of a large team dedicated to providing specialist support to the university. He gave an overview of how the school’s employability services can support your career progression. Graham said students can benefit from one-to-one career guidance appointments, advice for CVs, applications and interviews, as well as online various resources. They can also participate in employability workshops, job fairs, and employer events. Furthermore, the school advertises vacancies by Futurehub for graduate roles and has links to Student Circus, which provides opportunities for students looking for work in the UK.
