Nottingham Celebrates International Trade Award

Oct 19 2014

The University of Nottingham has won a prestigious award in recognition of the contribution it is making to UK exports and building international links. At the Insider International Trade Awards ceremony in Birmingham, the University was presented with the ‘Education Award’ for demonstrating ‘a clear strategy, international sales, and how a regional centre of education can be transformed into a ‘global player.’

Nottingham established an overseas campus in Malaysia in 2000 and also became the first western university to set up a campus in China, in Ningbo in 2004 and now has close to 10,000 students in total on these two overseas campuses. It also has more than 9,000 international students in the UK from more than 150 countries; 37% of the University’s research income is obtained internationally and over 25% of the institute’s academic staff are non-UK nationals.

It has also cemented strong business links; in Malaysia, the University is co-hosting a $45m Crops for the Future Research Centre in partnership with the government of Malaysia.  In Chin, it has established extensive partnerships through its Asia Business Centre with some of China’s biggest companies, including aerospace giant AVIC, railway company China South Rolling Stock, the China Resources Pharmaceutical Group and car manufacturers FAW and Changan. In addition, the University has also enabled local SMEs to build links with China.

The University of Nottingham has recently embarked upon two of its most ambitious projects in China. Earlier this year it opened its new Guangdong-Nottingham Advanced Finance Institute, which will train senior managers from industry, commerce, financial institutes and government organisations, who based in and around the southern Chinese financial centres of Guangzou and Foshan.

In another development at their campus in Ningbo, the University is helping to boost China’s marine economy by signing a £25m agreement to create an International Academy for Marine Economy and Technology (IAMET). The IAMET is a purpose built state of the art facility which will foster collaborations with industry, and draw on the input of independent world-leading academic and industrial experts.
