These scholarships are only available for students who register for full-time degree programmes and are for the first year of study.
Students can also apply, with the help of the University, for generous scholarships for international students from the city of Ningbo.

University entrants are eligible for more than one scholarship.
The University offers taught masters programmes across its three faculties: Social Sciences, which includes a branch of one of Europe’s topbusiness schools; Arts and Humanities; and Science and Engineering.

Ms Marina Chen, head of student recruitment and admissions at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China said: “We are keen to keep growing our international student community here at The University of Nottingham Ningbo China.
“Most of our students are from China, but we also have several hundred students from dozens of countries. We have students from Brazil, Panama, the US, Tanzania, Russia and South Korea, among the many nations represented here at our international campus,” she said.
Studying for a UK degree at a university in China where all programmes are delivered in English is a highly attractive proposition for individuals looking to add an international dimension to their overall university experience, noted Ms Chen.
“There are tremendous career opportunities for our alumni because they have unrivalled insights into the culture and workings of China, an important trading partner for most countries,” she said.
“Aside from the scholarship programmes, we support our international students through special social programmes and organised events. We are also developing our career support for international students and have plans to facilitate internships,” she said.
Ms Chen said international students have the opportunity to live in comfortable accommodation on the park-like campus, which blends British-style architecture with Chinese landscaping.
“The University of Nottingham Ningbo China’s fees are in line with UK levels, however living costs are generally lower in China, which means students who want to carefully manage their finances can still enjoy a comfortable lifestyle,” she said.
The University helps students with the paperwork associated with living and studying in another country.
