Student Profile

Hannah Manley

Hannah studied BA (Hons) Product Design at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) before embarking on the MSc Design: Products and Technology course to pursue her passion for medical design.

"The course has an emphasis on preparing students for real-life design, with fantastic links to industry and industrial-standard equipment, labs, and manufacturing machinery. It also offers the perfect blend of support and learning through teaching as well as self-led studies and independent learning. Being a small group of around 20 means sessions are full of interaction, inspiration, and collaboration, whilst still having room to breathe as well as plenty of one-to-one feedback with tutors.

"NTU has the modelling and manufacturing facilities that will prepare me for work, as well as access to industry-standard software and in-depth tutorials to run alongside. With fantastic studio space, we can work in a vibrant, collaborative atmosphere, or we can hide away in the library with 24 hour access. The library itself is a great facility, with access to hundreds of thousands of books, papers, journals and online or physical resources. It also has incredibly helpful, dedicated staff to support students through their reading and writing, with one-to-one sessions available to boost your work. Studying the MSc course, we also have access to all the material and electronic labs to develop our work, including fleets of machines like 3D printers."
