Social activities

Throughout your time at the College, there will be a variety of activities and events organised especially for students. As well as things like sports tournaments, ice skating and rock climbing, we’ll organise trips to museums, theme parks and other UK cities. 

Extra support

Support for under-18s

If you’re coming to study with us and you’re not yet 18, we’ll help you arrange a legal guardian. They will act as a 24/7 emergency contact, and will keep in touch with you throughout your studies. 

Additional support

We want to make sure that students with disabilities, medical conditions or potential complications receive any additional support they may need during their time with us. Let us know as soon as possible if you think this applies to you, and we can make sure your needs are met during your studies.

Due to start a degree preparation course with us?

Any other questions?

Will there be a Welcome Week when I arrive?  

The first week of term will be Welcome Week, giving you (and your parents or guardians if they are with you) an opportunity to meet your teachers and classmates. You can take a tour of the Nottingham Trent campus and facilities, and join social activities to help you meet new friends. We will also help with practicalities, such as registering with a doctor and finding the local supermarket.   

Is there extra support before I progress to my degree?  

Once you’ve completed your degree preparation course, we’ll still be here to support you as you make the transition to degree studies. This includes the option to take Pathways Extra, an online resource for students who have finished their degree preparation course, to help them prepare for starting their degree and develop additional employability skills. Find out more about Pathways Extra.  

What if I don’t meet degree requirements on my course?  

Our degree preparation courses are specially designed for international students, and helping them get ready for university in the UK, so our degree progression rates are very high. However, if you aren’t able to start your chosen degree after successfully passing your course, you can make use of our University Placement Service, which guarantees you a place at a UK university.
