The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity, nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we have no means of enforcing these standards. Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international employment page http://linguistlist.org/jobnet.html. This page has been set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

The University of Nottingham is the first, and so far the only, foreign
university to have received a licence to establish a campus in China under
new legislation passed in China in 2003. Working with the Wanli Education Group,
based in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, and with political support at municipal,
provincial and national levels, the campus opened with its first 250 students,
in September 2004. For the first year, the campus has been based at Zhejiang
Wanli University in Ningbo. A new state-of-the-art campus is being built and
will open in September 2005. The student population is predicted to grow to
4,000 by 2010, with a second phase of expansion planned.
In line with most Chinese degrees, the undergraduate courses are four years
in duration, with the first year focusing on intensive English language
improvement, preparatory academic content and orientation to European
thought and culture. Through its Centre for English Language Education
(CELE), the University seeks to add to a team of experienced English language
teaching professionals who have a detailed knowledge of EAP teaching and a good
understanding of the needs of Chinese learners preparing to study at degree
level in English.
