An international university in China
The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) was the first Sino-foreign university to open its doors in China. Established in 2004, with the full approval of the Chinese Ministry of Education, we are run by The University of Nottingham with cooperation from Zhejiang Wanli Education Group, a key player in the education sector in China.
We offer degree programmes from The University of Nottingham, taught in English, which are subject to the same quality assurance processes as in the UK.
The University of Nottingham is in the top one percent of more than 7,500 higher education institutions worldwide and league tables consistently rank the University highly.
With campuses in the UK, China and Malaysia, Nottingham is a world-class university with a truly global perspective.
We have more than 6,000 students and, each year, around 1,500 graduate with excellent academic qualifications, transferable skills, a creative outlook and a fresh perspective. They are in demand from employers around the globe who recognise the benefits of hiring talent with an international perspective.
Our internationalisation policy means that our students can study at The University of Nottingham in the UK or to go as exchange or study abroad students to other universities around the world.
International students come from more than 60 countries around the world and Chinese undergraduate students are selected from most provinces on the basis of their college entrance examinations.
Competition for entry is stiff and students are required to have a minimum level of English to be accepted onto our degree programmes. We are familiar with a range of overseas school-leaving qualifications. For further information about the qualifications needed to study here email our admissions team.
We have more than 600 teaching, research and professional services staff at UNNC, recruited from top universities, research institutes and companies from at least 40 countries worldwide.
All of the teaching on campus is carried out in English by staff either seconded from Nottingham or appointed to The University of Nottingham’s standards.
