Nottingham Trent University and the China University of Political Science and Law are to offer a joint degree aimed at increasing the recruitment of Chinese students onto Nottingham Trent’s postgraduate courses, following the university’s decision to collaborate with a number of insitutions worldwide.
From September, 50 students from the Chinese institution, which boasts one of the largest schools in the world with over 500 law professors, will spend their final year of study at Nottingham Law School.
The degree, LLB Comparative Legal Studies, is not a qualifying law degree but Nottingham Trent has stated that it expects the majority of Chinese students to study postgraduate law courses at Nottingham Trent after completing it.
Nottingham Law School dean Andrea Nollent said: “We are very pleased to be working with such an excellent and influential partner and we very much look forward to welcoming their students and to the development of further projects together.”
The school has already teamed up with Dutch insitution Radboud University, the Ghana School of Law and the Australian National University to offer similar joint courses.
