Words from Graduates
BSc (Hons) International Economics and Trade, 2016
Hello everyone, I am Wang Tingting, a graduate from the BSc in International Economics and Trade (IET). Having received the offers from McGill University, University of Cambridge, UCLA, LSE and Johns Hopkins University, I plan to pursue my master study in the Department of Economics in McGill University. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to my respectable teachers and warm-hearted friends for their encouragement and concern during the past four years.
From my point of view, IET has provided me with a wide field of vision and limitless possibilities. Generally, there are two main reasons to join us including academic improvement and extension of international vision.
The first reason to choose to study in IET in UNNC is about the academy. Throughout the four-year study, you will grasp the systematic advanced economic theories. Taking Macroeconomic/Microeconomic Theory, you will develop perspectives regarding welfare economics. Additionally, Economic Integration and International Trade can enhance your global vision and introduce you with government trade policy instruments worldwide. It is worth noting that your quantitative and analytical skills will be improved dramatically through a series of modules including Econometricsand Mathematical Economics, in which you can learn statistical and mathematical techniques to analyse economic issues. Moreover, through the above modules you will acquire a wealth of transferable skills such as critical analysis, problem solving and time management skills.
In addition, your international vision could be extended if you choose to study in the School of Economics. First of all, you will study with not only foreign teachers, but also foreign classmates. You can come up with your own opinion and communicate with them during or after the class. I believe your global vision will be enhanced by exchanging idea with people from different countries and cultures. Additionally, you will get the chance to study at the University of Nottingham UK campus in Year 3 as an exchange student, which could help you adapt to a new environment easily and study effectively in a foreign country. Also, your communication skills and cultural knowledge will also be enriched by interacting with multi-national students.
To conclude, BSc in International Economics and Trade is a program which can not only provide you with advanced economic knowledge, but also offer you abundant transferable skills and global platforms to help you perform better in your future study and work. So, why not join us?
BA English with International Business, 2014
I feel so lucky that I chose this major. It makes me feel confident about my future career, and provides me with a strong sense of language, especially in a business context. I also found many intern opportunities where my new knowledge might be applied. I make use of every summer vacation to go to volunteer abroad – it’s also a good platform for me to analyse language contexts in different cultures.
To sum up, this major is quite interesting and encourages me to study deeper. The most significant thing is that it has helped me know what I want and how I can achieve it.
BA International Communication, 2015
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.
MA Contemporary Chinese Studies, 2015
Having studied at a number of universities, I have been thrilled with that decision. The MA in Contemporary Chinese Studies perfectly met my needs and being located at Ningbo adds to the richness of the experience, providing an ideal environment to learn, understand and reflect on how to employ my new found knowledge in the future.
