I came to UNNC just over four years ago and have recently graduated. I chose to study at UNNC because it's a really unique place. You can study Chinese in the local environment whilst studying for a UK degree from a University ranked in the top 80 in the world! Getting a UK degree is challenging, but it’s also both fun and interesting.
On campus there are shops, restaurants, clubs and societies whilst the international students often went on organised trips to other cities. It’s a nice community. I took part in producing and presenting for NUTS (Nottingham University TV station) which was both enjoyable and useful for my CV. The city is pretty big (6 million people) and the nightlife rich. Ningbo's a cool mix of wealth and fast development, combined with all the traditions of a city of 7,000 years.
I graduated in June with a 2:1 and have actually stayed in Ningbo as I'm now employed as an International Relations Manager at a very large logistics firm. At work I'm able to use the knowledge from my degree, whilst I also communicate in Russian, Chinese and English!
In all, UNNC offers you a great opportunity. For me, it was important to be able to learn both Chinese and English, whilst I also get an internationally recognised UK degree at a far lower cost than studying in the UK.
