they seem to have a policy of accepting loads of overseas students on lower grades anyway at the original Nottingham, i suppose it makes sense.

But it wont be fair if they are investing british students fees on their china campus

Here in Athens, the University of Hertfordshire and a local higher education studies centre have opened a new campus. The degrees are awarded by Hertfordshire and the courses are taught in Greek.

Back to the original topic, it's not that bad, since the overseas people would have to spend well less money for their education.

However the experience would be totally different.

What I really hate, is that education has become business.

promoting its overseas profile seems to be the general aim, what with china being the fastest growing market for higher education it does make business sense really..

i think it's good. china is growing really quickly, and having a campus there will be good for notts' international reputation. plus, attendance will be good, they'll earn, and it says in the article that it's not costing its uk students... as wizard and rah pointed out, there is a business factor there. but why not? there wont be good education without sufficient money to fund it

it doesnt affect us as we are already at the uni,but at the end of the day, when a uni takes a non overseas money they see that as losing money,i feel that nottingham wants to become like the london unis and have exaceptionally high overseas student populations

nottingham already has a very high overseas population,higher than most, i think its trying to go down the road of the londons unis to get more money

cant really blame them
