Welcome to the website of the School of International Communications. We are the largest school in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, and are affiliated to the Department of Culture, Film & Media at the Nottingham campus. Understanding how to communicate, learn, express yourself and do business on global digital media platforms with people from all over the world and in many different languages is at the core of our teaching programmes.
Our BA (Hons) in International Communications is a provincial level accredited degree which includes a dedicated programme of study for a European or East Asian language. Its sister programme, BA (Hons) in International Communications with Chinese, has proved successful in attracting high quality international students to our school. Both programmes provide students with an opportunity to exchange to another Nottingham University campus or an external international university in their third year of study.
We run MA programmes in International Communications and one of the most successful PhD programmes in the university. We have been graduating students for nearly ten years and our alumni have continued their education in some of the world’s leading universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, as well as working for companies like the Bank of China, L’Oreal, Ogilvy & Mather and the British Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.

Hear from our Student
Four years in UNNC as a student of International Communications was a turning point of my life. I learnt to follow my passion, to think different, and to try all possibilities. From Cambridge to the United Nations to Dream Town, those values powered my spirit and lightened my road to the next adventure.

I have great research interests in the co-existence of the real and the virtual mediated by digital technology such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Students taking modules such as Transmedia, and Media and Communications Theory will be able to experience Mixed Reality firsthand and learn production level processes which makes VR and AR experiences possible”
