The University of Nottingham Ningbo China (UNNC) was honored with a prestigious accolade at the recent 2016 British Business Awards in Shanghai. UNNC took the award for “Educational Institutional Partnership of the Year”, beating off fierce competition from other universities, including Bangor University / CSUFT (Hunan) and Xi’an Jiaotong – Liverpool University (Suzhou).

Along with expressing his delight at the award, Provost Chris Rudd pointed out that the fostering of a student-focused experience was a key ingredient in the University’s overall success. “UNNC revolves around our students, both Chinese and those from overseas,” he said. “We provide a multitude of opportunities for students to engage with the real world – to intern with local industries and businesses, to forge valuable study and working relationships, gain entrepreneurship skills and to build up their confidence. I believe that this award reflects those achievements.”

Hosted by the British Chamber of Commerce Shanghai, the British Business Awards are held every two years. They celebrate British success in innovation and enterprise and recognize Chinese investment into the UK.





“培养以学生为中心的经验是大学取得整体成功的关键因素。我们为学生提供多种机会与社会接触 —— 去当地企业实习,建立宝贵的学习和工作关系,获得创业技能并建立他们的信心。我相信这个奖项反映了这些成就。” 宁波诺丁汉大学执行校长Chris Rudd高兴地指出。

“另一方面,这个奖项是对我们诺丁汉大学全体职员在过去12年中,在帮助与中国企业、大学和政府建立卓越关系所做的所有工作的认可。在相对较短的时间内,宁波诺丁汉大学在中国和国际上都享有很高的声誉。 获得这个奖项,鉴证了诺丁汉大学在中国的巨大的影响力和我们为促进中英关系做出的贡献。”
