Nottingham Trent University has a supportive, inclusive community

 September 28, 2021

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) was the third largest provider for accepted LGBT+ applicants in the UK in 2020 and the university is proud of their inclusive and supportive community.

“Equality is pivotal to the success of an organisation. As Vice-Chancellor I have made clear that advancing equality and diversity is not optional at Nottingham Trent University.More than my strong and abiding personal commitment, a diverse and inclusive environment where all colleagues are valued for who they are and the contributions they make, are core imperatives within our 2020-25 Strategic Plan," explains Professor Edward Peck, Vice-Chancellor at NTU.

"We champion an environment where the creativity and voice of all our colleagues are both encouraged and heard. We seek to nurture relationships built on respect and integrity. Equality is everyone’s business”

Providing useful insight into the experience of LGBT+ students

The University has been promoting an insightful report by Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) providing useful insight into the experience of LGBT+ students at university.

UCAS is the UK-based body that helps to inspire and empower people to make aspirational choices about higher education and learning through operating the application process for British universities.

The opportunity of higher and further education is a transformative experience, and for many it marks the start of a new journey in life. The diversity of students is one of the things that makes taking this step such a fulfilling experience, and students can look forward to meeting people from all backgrounds.
