Master's degrees


The University of Nottingham Ningbo China offers students two options depending on their level of English Language:

  • a one-year master’s degree for full-time students who meet the minimum English language requirements.
  • a two-year master’s degree for full-time students. This course includes an intensive preliminary year aimed at giving you the opportunity to improve your written and verbal English before undertaking credit-bearing modules.

Most of our master's degrees can also be studied on a part-time basis. Here follows a list of taught master’s degrees available at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China

Two-year master’s option

Students who do meet the English Language requirements for the one year master's programme can study a two year programme in order to initially build their English language skills.

The first year of the two-year master’s degree is designed by our Centre for English Language Education, providing language support and academic skills training so that you can make the most of your degree course.

By the time you complete your preliminary year course, you will:

  • have a deep knowledge of English grammar
  • be familiar with technical terms that you will come across during your degree course
  • have developed skills to analyse complex texts
  • be able to extract relevant information to build your own academic argument

Research based masters

The University of Nottingham Ningbo China offer a one-year, full-time research course that gives you the opportunity to carry out research over one year of postgraduate study in the field of sustainable energy technologies|.
