What says...

The University of Nottingham has long had a thing about China, fostering close links with over 60 universities in the People’s Republic, setting up various exchange programs and even hiring a Chancellor from the prestigious Chinese Academy of Sciences. Finally, it went to the extreme of creating a whole separate campus in Ningbo, a coastal city not too far from Shanghai, which opened its doors in 2004 (Nottingham’s similar project in Malaysia opened in 2000), and has earned a whole lot of favourable press in the process.

The idea is to offer a British, Nottingham-caliber education in an international environment – teaching is English, materials are imported from Nottingham, the awarding of degrees and quality assurance systems are all identical to Britain. But at the end of the day, you get to live in China and be an international student.
