UNNC's 'unique opportunities' praised by independent transnational education review
UNNC provides ‘unique opportunities’ for students.
The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) offers ‘unique opportunities’ for students and provides as fully a British education as is possible in China, according to an independent review.
According to The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education, an independent body that safeguards the quality of UK universities and colleges, the academic standards and quality of the student learning experience at UNNC are equivalent to those of The University of Nottingham UK.
The QAA’s recent review of transnational education in China found that in just eight years, UNNC has achieved its goal of providing its students with the ‘Nottingham experience’ in China.
It called the University an ‘impressive achievement’ and praised UNNC’s ‘fruitful’ relationships with other Chinese universities and the positive impact it has had on Ningbo city.
The review said: “The student experience received at UNNC which is as fully a British education as is possible to provide in China together with the creation of a tri-campus university that offers unique opportunities for student exchange and transnational education.
“UNNC enjoys fruitful relationships with Chinese institutions and Ningbo city itself has benefitted from the import of expert foreign resource and long-term relationships are being formed between the University and the local community.
“UNNC is an impressive achievement. As an integral part of the University of Nottingham, the academic standards and the quality of the student learning experience at UNNC are equivalent to those of the home university.”
Professor Nick Miles, Provost at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC), said: “This review confirms UNNC’s position as a leading provider of top-quality British education in China.
“We are proud of the advances we have made in the past eight years in providing our students with high-quality education that is equivalent to that of The University of Nottingham UK.
“This has been achieved whilst developing our research output and connections with other universities across China, as well as organisations and institutions in Ningbo city itself.
“We value the QAA’s involvement in the transnational education review process and the University will now be to taking forward consideration of points suggested in developing the campus.”
