Button - Overview      
Located in the East Midlands about one hour by train from London, Nottingham Trent University is a modern, forward thinking university with a long heritage.  It is one of the largest and most popular universities in the UK.  Depending on your major you will study on one of the two distinct campus sites.
  • The NTU City site is ideally located in Nottingham's cosmopolitan city centre with over 16,000 students. Exchange students may selected courses from the Business School or the School of Art and Design.
  • The Clifton campus is a self-contained, modern campus about 15 minutes from the city center with its own Students' Union bar, gym, shop, cafes, library and brand new accommodations. You will belong to a community of 7,000 students and may select courses from the Arts and Humanities.

  • Currently offers over 500 courses
  • Awarded Green Flags for their Brackenhurst and Clifton campuses for the most sustainable universities in the world

3 Button - Academics    
In the UK a course is the degree program or major and classes are called modules.  Some modules are year-long so it is not possible to study at NTU for one semester in some majors.

For Arts and Humanities module selections for 2016-17 click here, Arts and Humanities Exchange Handbook.2016-17.pdf
For Arts and Humanities module descriptions click here
For Business and Economics modules, you must select by Clicking on this link. (Select modules from the "Incoming Exchange Options" pdf and then download the "module specification" for each module you are requesting to submit to CBA for approval.)

To determine the CSULB equivalency for UK module credits divide the UK credits by four (e.g., 20 UK credits equals 5 CSULB units).

Nottingham Trent University Testimonial

I took 3 5 unit courses when I went abroad because that is a full workload over there. In terms of schedules, I had 4 days of classes, with tuesdays being my most heavy day. Weds they don't have class past noon because weds are when all the sports events are scheduled for. Each class you take will probably have a big lecture class of around 150 and then a small seminar class of around 12-15. The seminar professors may be different then your lecturer so that sometimes made it difficult because they weren't always on the same page. As for teaching, I had one outstanding professor from Jamaica who taught me econometrics and he really made sure you knew the material and was very helpful throughout the seminar. I had another professor from China who was very strict and did not have the best teaching method so I taught myself for the most part. My last professor was from England and he taught well, only thing was in the lecture we were learning a lot of math based concepts and in his seminar it was all theory so you did not know what to expect for the exams. In terms of exams for economics, I had 2 courses that my grade relied 100% on the final exam which was terrifying. The worst part about it was that there was so much information and no study guide or anything. The best advice I have is just to keep up with the material and read the textbooks because they are very helpful. My last class had 50% coursework and 50% final. I know I probably scared some with talking about the final but let me assure you that if you put in work, you will do fine. I passed my finals with 1 A and 2 B's. Once again I urge you to keep up with the classes, not necessarily because of the difficulty, but there is just a lot of information. It all depends on your major though, my friends that studied abroad with me were sociology and marketing majors and they just had papers and projects to do respectively, with no final. I went in fall and class started at the end of September and finished in in the beginning of December. However, you don't take the finals till the end of January which did conflict with the beginning of Long Beach State's spring semester. Just talk to an adviser and they will help you with that. I ended up taking my finals back here at CSULB. There is also 2 weeks in January before the exam that are just simply there if you need to ask your professors questions, they are not classes for new material. Make sure you get a lot of help from your professors because they do not have tutors here. There are 2 campuses, clifton and City, depending on your major.
