Why UNNC 2

Why study at The University of Nottingham in China?

 

Study for a UK university degree in China

Why not set yourself aside from the crowd and enhance your CV with a UK degree in China. Gain a quality degree and first-hand experience of the world's fastest growing nation and economy. Knowledge of China is becoming a frequent desire of employers, whilst the number of students which tick this box, is limited.

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

Academics at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China are seconded from Nottingham UK or are recruited from top universities and research institutions around the world. Teaching programmes are subject to the same rigorous quality assurance processes as at The University of Nottingham, UK.

Ningbo

Ningbo is populated with almost eight million people, possessing a strong focus in business, trade, engineering, science, technology, innovation and education. Ningbo has recently been ranked as the 7th best city for business by Forbes magazine.

Match Ningbo's 7,000 year old civilisation with its rapid development and you're presented with a lively fusion of heritage and modernity. Modern business meets history in no stronger way than through Ningbo's port. One of the original maritime stops non the Silk Road, Ningbo now officially has the busiest port in the world (based on 2013 Q1, Q2 and Q3 global volume statistics), offering ample opportunities for entrepreneurial minds.

Ningbo also houses its own international airport and is well connected to Shanghai by a one-hour-forty-minute bullet train, offering further opportunities to explore, be entertained and network.
