Nottingham and China

The University of Nottingham's links with China date back many years with wide ranging collaborations with Chinese universities and joint research initaitives that bridge the gap between the UK and China.

These partnerships involve providing training programmes for academic staff, conducting joint research across the Arts, Law and Social Science, Engineering and Science, and developing joint courses and international PhD schemes.

Our School of Contemporary Chinese Studies was established in recognition of the national and global importance of understanding contemporary change and transformation in China.
