Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences




Welcome to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (FHSS) at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China. The Faculty is home to a stimulating range of disciplines and activities with teaching, student experience and research at our heart. You can choose from our programmes in  Education, Economics, English, International Communications, International Studies, and combine them with modern European and Asian languages including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese and Korean.

FHSS has the highest proportion of international students in the University and one of the most diverse international academic staffs you will find in any university. All of this makes for a dynamic and exciting environment in which to explore crucial questions of who you are and who you want to be.

Humanities and Social Sciences study what it means to be human and how societies work and can be made to work better in an ever more inter-connected and complex world. We offer a liberal and practical education best suited to shape the professionals and leaders of tomorrow’s complex and challenging world.

More than 65% of our undergraduate students currently go on to postgraduate study at top global universities. Our own postgraduates are leaders in China and in international organisations with unique experience and learning to offer.  Our students have the opportunity to spend a semester or up to two years of their four year degrees in Nottingham University in the UK or Malaysia or with others of our prestigious international partners for example in the U21 group of leading world universities or UK Russell Group.

I urge you to look more closely at information of individual Schools and research centres within the Faculty or better still, come to an Open Day or arrange to talk with representatives of the areas that most interest you. FHSS is a unique Faculty within a unique university.

Dare to dream! Join the future.
