They're part of it, are you?

Our students come from all walks of life, from all over the UK, and each have their own story to tell. Some come from traditional academic backgrounds, some come from previous experience in industry. Some have A-level Maths and Physics. Some don't. Some started their journey on what they thought was the right career path for them, before discovering engineering, and NMITE. Others began their studies at a more traditional university, found it wasn't right for them, and switched to our unique model of hands-on learning.

No matter where our students start off, we aim for them all to graduate on a level playing field, fully prepared for their future careers. 

Our Herefordshire students have been telling us their own unique stories. Check out our Youtube playlist and get inspired to write the next chapter in your own story this September as one of NMITE's #HomegrownEngineers
