The Sino-British College (SBC) is an international university college, jointly established by the University of Shanghai for Science & Technology (USST), and nine leading UK universities: The University of Bradford, The University of Huddersfield, The University of Leeds, Leeds Metropolitan University, Liverpool John Moores University, Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Salford, The University of Sheffield, and Sheffield Hallam University.
SBC became a fully licensed university college on September 1st, 2006. It is the only Shanghai-based higher education institution to be awarded a license by the Chinese Ministry of Education to offer full degree programmes to multiple overseas universities (the so-called "1 to N Model"), either taught entirely at the Shanghai campus, or with a period of study abroad. Graduates are awarded degrees from one of the partner British institutions.
SBC is based in a beautiful historic campus in the heart of the city of Shanghai. Currently, it has about 1,800 full-time undergraduate students and nearly 50 international students from 20 countries and regions. Programmes are taught in the English language across the whole spectrum of Business and Engineering by a highly qualified academic team comprising over 80 staff from 15 different countries.
I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
