Teaching and Learning

Every aspect of our teaching addresses the intellectual and personal development of our students. Teaching is an ongoing interaction with students through course design, teaching activities, assessment and feedback.

Nottingham’s Educational Values

Studying at the University of Nottingham Ningbo Campus means you’ll directly engage with the educational values of research-led teaching, an international environment and quality teaching spaces.

The teaching approach at UNNC is shaped and informed by The University of Nottingham, UK. Our degrees run parallel to degrees offered at the University of Nottingham, UK, and are subject to the same quality assurance processes.

Students graduate with University of Nottingham degrees, whether they complete their programmes at our campuses in the UK, China or Malaysia.

The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the organisation which safeguards and helps improve academic standards within higher education in the UK, expressed confidence in the quality of learning opportunities available to our students and highlighted a number of areas of good practice for commendation.
