Study Local Programme


The impact of the global epidemic has brought many uncertainties to Chinese students studying abroad. Due to the epidemic, immigration restrictions and flight restrictions, many Chinese students are unable to study overseas as planned.

In light of this situation, the University of Nottingham Ningbo launched the “student local” program to help students solve their study problems. This program allows students to study and live at UNNC while retaining their roll in their chosen university abroad. Students who participate in this program can take courses together with UNNC students, join all sorts of student activities and use all the campus facilities such as the library and gym. At the end of their studies, UNNC will issue official transcripts for students' subsequent credit transfer in their home university.
