Nottingham University Invites You to the Two Events That Can Help You Do Business In China and Overseas

Doing business in a foreign market can be a daunting prospect: difficulty in accessing reliable market information, unfamiliar market regulations, concerns over protecting the intellectual property rights and language and cultural differences are among the most common barriers cited by UK SMEs

Come to our events to learn of the Chinese business culture and the international student placement opportunities:

Event 1: International student placement: a breakfast workshop (07:30 – 09:00, May 14)

The event is co-organised by the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, Central Nottinghamshire College and New College Nottingham, and with support from the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce and the Invest in Nottingham Club.

With over 12,000 international students from all corners of the globe studying in Nottingham as well as over 11,000 studying at the University of Nottingham’s offshore campuses in China and Malaysia, the pool of future graduate talent engaged with Nottingham’s educational institutions extends to over 20,000.

Join us and learn of the success stories and network with Asia Business Centre and other likeminded people.

Event 2: Doing Business With China workshop (June 5)
