The city of its location is Ningbo, Zhejiang province, one of the most highly developed provinces in China. This city, in my point of view, is a very good choice for establishing the University, because it is neither big nor small and not as crowded as most Chinese cities. Besides, it is one of the cleanest cities in the world, which is a good point also. :-)
In the UNNC, all students are supposed to speak English, but I would like to recommend to all international students coming here to learn a bit of Chinese. This will make your life easier here, in the University, and in China as a whole. As you are entering the university, you will be given a choice whether to go as first year or second year students (unless you have an appropriate English level certificate). So, my strong suggestion to you to start as a freshman. It will give you some kind of time to see how the land lies, to get used to new culture, new people and atmosphere. But anyway, last decision is up to you!
