Every year UNNC admits over 1,200 of the most talented students, the top 5% of their generation, from across China. Almost two thirds of graduates find employment in Fortune Global 500 companies, government or public institutions. The Ningbo campus has allowed The University of Nottingham to build its reputation and expand its network in China, resulting in a growing number of Chinese students coming to Nottingham to study.
