The Sino-British College (SBC) is an international university college established in 2006 as a Joint Venture (JV) by the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) and 9 NCUK universities: University of Bradford; University of Huddersfield; University of Leeds; Leeds Beckett University; Liverpool John Moores University; Manchester Metropolitan University; University of Salford; The University of Sheffield; Sheffield Hallam University. SBC is unique in two respects. First, it is the only such JV approved to operate in Shanghai. Second, it offers considerable choice and scope for students to continue their study with UK partners.
SBC provides an international learning environment, offering UK Business and Engineering degree programmes taught in English. The programmes are taught by an academic team comprising 80 international staff from 20 countries. Students can choose to complete the degree fully at SBC or as split degree completing in the UK. Upon completion of degree study, graduates are awarded degrees from one of the British partner universities. Some eligible students will also be awarded degrees from USST.
