What's it like working at UNNC? See what our employees have to say:
In the time of globalization, scientific and technological research is going across the boundaries between countries and particularly crossing the industries, research institutions and universities to seeking cooperation and win-win. University of Nottingham Ningbo China provides just an excellent platform for this cooperation, which likely to align the strengths of each individual entities for innovation. I like very much the platform at UNNC, and I am just trying to link the aerospace industries with UNNC for the material innovation.
I have been working at UNNC for almost 4 years. UNNC offers a dynamic and friendly environment. It is a diverse community, with staff members coming from different parts of the world.
As an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Business, I get to teach to both under-graduate and postgraduate students, most of which are Chinese nationals, and to teach to small groups (20 students) as well as large groups (600 students).
Ningbo, especially the area around UNNC has developed so quickly! International cuisines are very affordable, readily available and eating out is a delight. We have great amenities ranging from international supermarkets to global stores catering to our daughters’ needs, such as Mothercare and Toys R Us, right at our doorsteps!

When you accept a post at UNNC you join a global institution with a diverse, dynamic, and multicultural teaching and research community which provides a vibrant, stimulating, and collegial work and study environment.
