School of Contemporary Chinese Studies
The School of Contemporary Chinese Studies (SCCS), at the University of Nottingham, is recognised as a national leader in the provision of high quality, discipline-based research and degree programmes which incorporate the study of China at one of the UK’s most successful universities. Now the fastest growing School at the University, SCCS was initially established in January 2007, bringing together the former Institute of Contemporary Chinese Studies with the China Policy Institute (CPI), a world-class policy thinktank established to raise the level of understanding of China in the UK.
The School’s success in teaching, research, policy analysis, business engagement and promotion of Chinese culture and language has made us financially strong and prepared for the current challenges in higher education. Since our inception we have made remarkable progress in student recruitment, research and the creation of new degree programmes. Our sustained success is reflected in the construction of the Si Yuan China Centre, which will house the School and is due to be completed in September 2012. The opening of this centre demonstrates our commitment to world-class research and engagement with China. With its CPI and the Nottingham Confucius Institute we are excited about the dynamic position of SCCS within the University, the opportunities available to the School and are seeking to build upon our achievements. Our aim is to continue to attract the most talented staff and students to our stimulating teaching and research environment and we are delighted to announce six new job vacancies within the School:
