Ningbo Xingning School Visit

On July 10th we look forward to welcoming the staff and students from Ningbo Xingning School to Nottingham to experience life in the UK and at NUAST. In return NUAST will be sending over 20 Sixth Form students to China in September. NUAST became linked with this 'sister school' in Autumn of last year and it is hoped that students and staff from both schools will benefit from this relationship for many years to come.

NUAST students will have many memorable experiences whilst they are away. Chinese family homes will be opened up to us so students can visit in small groups to experience a traditional Chinese meal. They will also attend a variety of lessons based on our specialist subjects of Science and Engineering. Finally there will be sightseeing in nearby Shanghai to complete the trip. We hope to replicate this hospitality for those students that will visit us in Nottingham.

The University of Nottingham have a campus in Ningbo. This will be a great opportunity for both sets of students to explore University life in each others countries and will hopefully lead to some students choosing to study in Ningbo or Nottingham as they progress with their education. This will be invaluable to NUAST students before they start their UCAS applications this coming academic year.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students and the students from Xingning School. We hope that this will be the start of a long term relationship over future academic years.
