Spotlight on Nottingham Trent: teaching excellence

30 Sep 2020 - Barni Homden

There are lots of reasons for a student choosing to go to university. However, the ultimate goal is always the same: to get a great education. That’s why teaching excellence is one of the greatest benefits a university can give you.

Teaching excellence at Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University has long had a reputation for its strength in teaching, and has committed itself to constant improvement in the area.

This is reflected in Nottingham Trent’s rankings. According to the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021, the University is in the UK’s top 30 for the quality of its teaching.

The University was also given a Gold award for teaching by the Teaching Excellence Framework, which means you’ll receive the highest quality education at Nottingham Trent.

Teaching support at NTU

One of Nottingham Trent’s strategies to maintain its excellence in teaching is to attract excellent teachers. This may sound obvious, but the University is committed to recruiting high-quality, high-profile staff to ensure its students get the best education possible.

For example, Professor Mark Griffiths teaches Psychology at Nottingham Trent; he’s also a high profile media commentator in the UK, having appeared on over 3,000 radio and television programmes. He’s incredibly research active, having published 5 books and over 600 referenced papers.

Equipped to teach

Another vital part of delivering excellent teaching is ensuring that teachers have the right tools to share their knowledge. Nottingham Trent has invested over £400 million in its facilities over the past decade or so, ensuring that teachers have modern, up-to-date buildings and equipment at their disposal.

Science teachers – and students – have benefitted from a brand new ‘superlab’. Meanwhile, a teaching and learning building opened in 2015, and a teaching suite and modernised library will help improve the quality of teaching.

Superb results

Of course, this dedication to high quality teaching should be judged on its results. Thankfully for Nottingham Trent’s students, the University has a fantastic graduate employment rate of 93% (Higher Education Statistics Agency), and consistently high student satisfaction and student experience ratings.

This success of the University’s graduates is largely down to the excellent teaching, as well as the great links the University and its staff has built with businesses. Nottingham Trent is connected to a network of thousands of companies, and offers excellent opportunities to take part in a work placement available on every degree.
