On March 28, 2017 representatives from the Faculty of Arts and the BALAC program welcomed Dr. Hing Kai Chan, Professor of Operations Management, UNNC Business School, representing the University’s international affairs. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss possibilities to materialize the collaboration after the signing of the MOU with the Faculty of Arts in March. The prospective joint activities are student exchange programs, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The UNNC is ready to welcome undergraduate students who are interested in the fields of business and international relations. As for the graduate programs, the potential partnerships are with their MA programs in Applied Linguistics, Contemporary Chinese Studies, and Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).

The University of Nottingham Ningbo was the first international university in China. The UNNC, together with the University of Nottingham Malaysia, are international campuses of the University of Nottingham, UK.
