Nino Briffa
The more you get involved, the more you will get out of it. It's important to realise that everyone is feeling nervous whatever their age, and everybody is trying to find their way around this new experience. Making contact with other students, mature or otherwise, will help you feel more involved in student life and open the doors to other opportunities. Nino Briffa, BA (Hons) Product Design

Libby Farrier-Williams
I would strongly suggest finding out about the support that the University offer throughout the year, such as the employability team and library. It may seem silly learning about this early on, but with the intensity of a masters course being prepared and knowing where to turn to for career advice and CV writing is a must.

Confetti students are just as much a part of NTU as all our other students, so we would encourage you to get involved in as many of the events listed on this website as possible. Welcome Week is a great opportunity to get to know Nottingham, the University and – most importantly – to meet new friends, so make sure you don’t miss out!
