The University of Nottingham was the first foreign university to establish a campus in China. The campus currently has more than 5,000 students and over 470 teaching and administrative staff from all over the world, including international students from more than 30 countries.

New purpose-built accommodation and excellent catering facilities are also provided for all students who wish to live on campus.

There are currently eight academic divisions offering full-time and part-time postgraduate degrees: 

The University has also established eight research institutes

All programmes at Nottingham Ningbo are taught in English with the same teaching and assessment standards as The University of Nottingham, UK.


International tuition fees at the China Campus for the 2016-17 session for a one year masters programme and PhD programmes can be found on the China site.

Fees are subject to change for the 2017-18 session.

You will find that living costs in Malaysia are considerably lower than in the UK.


International students are provided with accommodation at the International Residence Building where they can enjoy excellent services at a reasonable rate. Alternatively you can choose to live in one of the local student residence buildings.


Postgraduate applicants to the China Campus can apply for any degree, although international students going to Ningbo on a student visa must study full time and cannot register for a part-time course of study.Unless specified, applications should be made directly to the China Campus.

The Graduate School

The Graduate School promotes research and training on a campus-wide scale while creating links with the University’s UK and Malaysia campuses and building and strengthening ties with the business and training community in China. Staff in the Graduate School are committed to working with you to ensure you receive all the relevant support and skills training you need to fulfil your potential.

English language

Applicants are subject to similar language requirements as China Campus those applying to The University of Nottingham, UK. For candidates who do not meet our language entry requirements, we offer a one-year premasters programme that combines an English for Academic Purposes (EAP) programme with other core academic courses. Successful completion of the pre-masters programme leads to the relevant masters courses offered at the campus.
