Enrichment Activities

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 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 mean that every month there is a range of speakers, educational visits and industry challenges available across the curriculum.
