                                                 “I came to NTU because my family was keen on it. My brother was
                                                 already studying in Nottingham and he had recommended the city.
                                                 I came to visit him before applying to NTIC and so met people who
                                                 studied both at the College and at Nottingham Trent University.
                                                 They said it was a great college and a great university, so I knew it
                                                 would be a good place to study and applied.

                                                 “I am pleased to say they were not wrong. NTU is an interesting
                                                 university and Nottingham is extremely nice. I really like Market Square –
                                                 it’s a nice place to socialise.

                                                 “All of the people in the College are very friendly – staff and students
                                                 alike. I socialise with other students a lot. We have trips to other cities so

“What sets Nottingham Trent International College apart is that it doesn’t just
give students English language preparation. It gives students preparation in
their subject areas for their future studies too. This is really important as I think
international students often need this preparation before studying at university.”

“I came to Nottingham to study because Nottingham Trent University is strong
for Media and Communications and the subject is much more established here
than it is back home. The staff are so nice - I like everyone here and I settled in
quickly. The tutorials provide excellent support and the tutors are very friendly.

“I would recommend that you come to NTIC because you will learn so much, not
just academically but about so many different cultures.”
