Weiwei Hu, an International Communication with Japanese student at UNNC, has won outstanding award in the Japanese Tanka (short poem) Contest with the theme of love and longing. This competition was organised by Echizen City, Fukui, which is mentioned in the oldest existing collection of this type of poetry dating back 1500 years. This year over 18,871 entries are submitted from all over the world and Hu is the only foreign student who won this prize. At UNNC, the language centre offers French, German, Japanese, Mandarin and Spanish courses to undergraduate and postgraduate students across the University. Students can study languages as part of their degree course, as an additional module as well as for free and for fun. More information, visit The University of Nottingham Ningbo China.

Thinking of studying here in China and want to know what it’s like? Read this blog post by Swedish student Emmie about what motivated her to study here at UNNC!

"

The latest statistics from Ningbo Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation Bureau show that the 43 Fortune 500 enterprises have invested US$10.44 billion in 105 projects in Ningbo, with the contractual investment standing at US$4.25 billion and the realized investment, US$3.08 billion.

As the major force for the internationalization of the Ningbo city, foreign investment, especially the quality investment from the Fortune 500 enterprises, has always been an important engine to promote the development of the city as a modern international port. Since the introduction of the first project invested by a Fortune 500 enterprise in 1989, Ningbo has become an ideal destination for the investments from such multinational giants as Itochu, Mitsubishi, DuPont, Maersk, Metro and Volkswagen. Over the past 30 odd years, those investors have brought about new management patterns, technologies and concepts besides the substantial capitals.

The “Indoor Disney Land in Ningbo”
It’s crazy to imagine that in a few months’ time I will be living just a short walk away from the Romon Amusement Park, a huge, partially indoor theme park being built in Ningbo’s Yinzhou District. It’s already being dubbed the “indoor Disney Land in Ningbo” although reports that Mickey Mouse is moving to town are unfounded.
The complex will feature the theme park, a shopping mall, a Hilton Garden Hotel, an apartment hotel and a commercial centre.Apparently modelled on Lotte World in Korea (the world’s largest indoor theme park), Romon will open in October this year.
It’s been bizarre watching as the rollercoasters have slowly arisen from fields at Ningbo’s southern edge. 
For more details of what the park will apparently look like check out these photos on themeparx.com. 

This indoor theme park is just down the road from our campus!

Ningbo’s first underground/metro/rail transit line will open for public use over the summer, with a second line following next year. They are the first of up to 15 planned lines that will connect almost all parts of Ningbo.
What’s more, the Yinzhou district, where UNNC is located, will get a new tram system that will link some of the district’s more well-known areas. 
So plenty of good transportation news for city residents!

A little bit of England in Ningbo
Wandering around Ningbo’s posh Heyi Avenue shopping centre at the weekend (mainly looking into the windows of Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Chanel etc), we came across the Annvita English Tea Company cafe, which promised English Afternoon Tea and had a huge selection of Whittard’s of Chelsea teas (a famous brand of tea in England) available to buy.So, being English we had to try it out for ourselves. We opted for the 98RMB Jane Austen afternoon tea set and it wasn’t half bad. We got the full works - nicely brewed tea, served with optional milk and sugar, tiny sandwiches, tasty scones and spiced fruitcake, as well as a little bit of fruit - all beautifully presented on a tiered plate and fine China. While it wasn’t quite the same as we’d get in England, it was a pretty good attempt and the cafe’s nice surroundings - complete with royalty-emblazoned China for sale - made for a nice little reminder of home. It’s always a novelty to see how elements of your own culture are presented abroad and while it’s often a bit of a stereotypical presentation, it’s enjoyable to see, as in this case, residents of your adopted home country enjoying a little piece of your heritage. In case you’re not familiar with the idea of English afternoon tea, this article on Britishfood.about.com gives you the lowdown on its history and how it’s enjoyed in England today.

Ningbo has all sorts of international food on offer, from English afternoon teas to Indian curry, as described in one UNNC student’s blog on the subject.
