Entry requirements

Course Requirements: Open to graduates of any subjects. This master programme requires students to have a bachelor's degree (or international equivalent) from a recognised institution at the same standard as UK university's 2:1 (upper second class honours degree or international equivalent). English Language Requirements: Applicants whose first language is not English, and who do not have a degree from a UK institution, are required to have the following English language qualifications before they can register on an academic programme: - IELTS: 6.5 (with no less than 6.0 in each element) or - PTE Academic: 71 (minimum 65) or - TOEFL (IBT): 87 (minimum 20 in Speaking and 19 in all other elements) Alternative Requirements: Teaching Experience: Applicants to the MA TESOL are not formally required to have prior teaching experience, although such experience is naturally considered useful, and can help in providing students with a more immediate and practical context when reflecting on the course content. All applicants accepted onto the MA TESOL with less than nine months' full-time experience of English Language Teaching will be required to complete a 20-credit Teaching Practicum module in the second semester (those who are able to provide evidence of previous teaching experience can claim exemption from this). All applicants should therefore include a full CV as part of their application. Applicants should also provide *a sample of their academic writing in English. A Skype, telephone or face-to-face interview is normally required as part of the acceptance decision making process. *Writing sample could be a section from the dissertation/essay or a translated section from the dissertation or a translated essay (word length: around 1,000). Interview Arrangements: All applicants must also complete an interview with the course admissions tutor. To qualify for an interview, students must ordinarily fully meet the IELTS entry requirement at their point of application. However, potential students applying to the MA TESOL may be considered for an interview, if their total IELTS score is no less than 0.5 band below the stipulated entry level and have achieved IELTS 6.0 in writing. In these cases, depending on their interview outcome, such students may be offered a conditional offer based on their successful completion of an English Language pre-sessional programme.

What students think about University of Nottingham Ningbo China

    Murtaza Faruquee - PhD in Marketing

    Testimonial from Murtaza Faruquee - PhD in Marketing, student at University of Nottingham Ningbo China

    “UNNC provides a unique embodiment for PhD research. I have received the best of the philosophical and theoretical robustness of British research style and at the same time the cultural richness of China, which have helped me to understand things from different vantage points, and collectively made me a better researcher.

    I came to this institution as a knowledge-hungry sapling and learned to grow with wisdom. The journey of achieving a PhD is a challenging yet divine experience. As an international student, I cannot think of any other place where I could get a similar exposure and opportunities together.”

    Phoebe Miles - PhD in English Studies

    Testimonial from Phoebe Miles - PhD in English Studies, student at University of Nottingham Ningbo China

    “Achieving a PhD is not just about your thesis; it’s about recognising your own abilities and developing yourself as a researcher. Since choosing UNNC, I’ve had multiple opportunities in both academia and in my own personal interests. I’ve learnt another language, explored new culture, and formed networks that will support my academic career for years to come.”

    Devianita - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management

    Testimonial from Devianita - MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, student at University of Nottingham Ningbo China

    "Doing the one-year master's programme at UNNC has been an exciting journey for me. It is a pity that I could not attend the lectures physically due to the pandemic. Nevertheless, the lecturers and staff have always put tremendous effort in delivering the course materials clearly. Moreover, making friends with others who come from different backgrounds has been wonderful. Other than studying theories, I am very grateful that UNNC's MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management programme has also provided me with hands-on experience throughout the extensive curriculum. It has allowed me to realise my value, sharpen my creative thinking, and become a more effective person who is ready to contribute to society. There is a saying which goes, 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.' and I believe I have taken that one step right here at UNNC. "
