LLB (Hons) Nottingham Trent University
The University was formed by the amalgamation of many separate institutions of higher education. It originated from the Nottingham Government School of Design founded in 1843. In 1964, Nottingham Regional College was opened and in 1966, the original Nottingham College of Design was linked with the Regional College. Together they merged and the institution was upgraded to Polytechnic status in 1970 to become 'Trent Polytechnic'.
In 1975, it merged with Nottingham College of Education and in 1988, the official name changed to 'Nottingham Polytechnic'. Under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 all Polytechnics and some higher education colleges became eligible for full university status; at this point, the institution officially became 'Nottingham Trent University'.
