Centre for Research on Sino-Foreign Universities (CRSFU)
The Centre for Research on Sino-Foreign Universities was founded on April 2011. The Centre performs functions such as summarizing the educational experiences of UNNC, researching on reforms of higher education both at domestic and abroad and exploring the new models, demands and features of Sino-foreign universities. It aims to solve the practical and theoretical problems in the process of running the university and to provide academic foundations for successfully cultivating international talents with both international vision and patriotic feelings.
In 2014, Centre for Research on Sino-Foreign Universities hosted the “International Forum on Building High Level Sino-Foreign Universities”. The Centre published the collection “Pursuing the University Dream: the 10 Years’ Exploration of the University of Nottingham Ningbo China” and had extensive academic exchanges with Chinese and foreign representatives in the conference.
