NUAST offers unrivalled opportunities beyond the curriculum. We have put together a package of extra-curricular activities that provide NUAST students with a unique set of skills highly valued by employers.
Whilst NUAST offers its students the very best in specialist teaching and facilities, our after-school enrichment programme provides unrivalled extra-curricular opportunities for everyone who attends the academy. Beyond specific enrichment activities, NUAST’s unique links with local and national employers and the University of Nottingham means there is a range of speakers, educational visits and industry challenges available across the curriculum.
At NUAST we aim to provide a range of enrichment activities aimed at extending students’ academic programmes, developing them as people and ensuring strong employability skills which will enhance their CVs. Below is the current enrichment offer.
