The PhD in International Studies is a programme of doctoral study for students who would like to undertake advanced research in preparation for an academic or related career. The PhD programme can be taken full-time over 3 years (for primary research) plus up to one year for writing up of the thesis, or part-time over 6 years for primary research plus up to 2 years for writing up. If admitted to this degree, students will conduct their own research under the guidance of two academic supervisors, one based at the University's China campus and another at the UK campus. Graduates will be awarded a University of Nottingham UK degree, which is also recognised by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
Taking a research degree allows you the freedom to study a topic of interest in-depth, with the help of two academic supervisors. The School's international environment and its world-class research provide an ideal home for postgraduate research. Please see the areas of supervision offered by staff members of the School.

Julia Aughenbaugh (USA) - MA International Higher Education
“I've really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about higher education from an international perspective at UNNC. As an MA student in the International Higher Education program, I have taken an internship on campus each semester to learn more about university management.
My course has organized trips to nearby universities so that we can learn more about other unique global partnerships. I get insight into the British education system at UNNC and the Chinese systems at other universities in the area.
My education here has opened my mind to new systems of university management while also focusing my interests. I've also really enjoyed all of the free field trips and activities that the university offers, it has helped me get to know Chinese history and culture better."
Kanjanaporn Tienchat-A-Nan (Thailand) - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management
"From this programme, I think the most beneficial part is doing a business plan. This prepares you for your future business. It makes you think about all the perspectives involved in running a business, and not just having an idea and desire to start your own business.
We have to concern about product/services, financial matters, cashflow and the marketing plan. Some of these aspects I did not know. I had to study them to complete a business plan. After the study with Nottingham China, I am now running a successful business."
Olamide Balogun (Nigeria) - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management
"Having been a student of this university for 5 years now (undergraduate study for the first 4 years), I can safely say that I never thought I would be receiving the president’s award for the outstanding master student at the graduation ceremony. Let me tell you that it wasn’t always easy but the journey I can say was worth it.
I have learnt along the way that 'for every NO I received brought me closer to the YES I never imagined'. I sincerely do want to thank everyone that has played a role in helping me reach a stage. I enjoyed my study here at UNNC."
