The School of Science & Technology

The School of Science and Technology at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is one of the few places in the UK where you can study core sciences alongside innovative areas like computing and technology, forensics, sport and biomedical sciences.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are inspiring and innovative and are designed to be industrially relevant, for a wide range of careers or futures in research and academia.


We offers year long, paid placements at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. This invaluable opportunity will allow you to gain vital work experience in your chosen field and enhance your employability upon graduation. We have over 260 industrial partners for industry placements, including Microsoft, ARM, GlaxoSmithKline, IBM, HP, Xerox, Siemens and Experian.


In this stimulating and creative environment we equip students with the knowledge and transferable skills to put them ahead of the graduate crowd. 94% of our graduates* are employed or engaged in further study within six months of leaving NTU. * Of those available for work, HESA survey 2009-10.

World Class Research

Our extensive links with industry, coupled with the relevance of our research specialisms ensure that many projects benefit from external funding from highly respected sources. This has included £7.65 million for cancer research from the John and Lucille van Geest Foundation, £1 million for ground-breaking 3D security imaging research and a rare funding boost from the US for spider-silk fusion research.

Nottingham is a fantastic city to study and graduate in as a scientist as 1 in 5 jobs in the city is within the science sector.
