If you’re new to the webinar concept, you may be wondering how it all works and what the benefits are.
As one of the UK’s top universities, we’re always looking for effective ways to engage with – and educate – our current and prospective students. Our webinars offer the perfect opportunity for prospective students to learn valuable and detailed information about Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) online courses and ask any questions directly to our Admissions and Academic teams.
We have a wide range of webinars geared towards prospective students, and you can choose which one best suits your needs based on where you are in your own application journey.
Our Admissions sessions are ideal for anyone wanting to find out more about studying online at NTU. Delivered by the Admissions team, these sessions will delve into the benefits of studying distance learning and studying at NTU, and provide an overview of the student journey, including the application process.

Recommended webinar: Online MA International Relations – women and global movements

The virtual open day
We use our virtual open day webinars to give online students a chance to meet the people involved in delivering each programme. You’ll get a feel for lecturers’ teaching styles and specialisms, before having a chance to ask your own questions at the end of the session. The goal here is to give students a similar experience to the conventional open day they’d expect from a campus-based course.
What to expect: the details
We have 15-30 attendees in each webinar session, all of whom are on mute but able to ask and respond to questions by typing in the chat box. Everyone can see what’s being typed in real-time, which means everyone benefits from the questions and the leaders’ answers.
Each type of session will follow a format that has been designed to make the most of the time available. Sessions usually last up to an hour, with the last 10 to 15 minutes dedicated to a Q&A session for the attendees.
We hold our webinars regularly, and keep a channel updated with the latest recordings for you to revisit at your convenience. For more information on upcoming live webinars, please request more information from our Admissions team.
