The Sino-British College, USST, (SBC), is a unique university-college. It was established in 2006 as a joint venture (JV) between the University of Shanghai for Science & Technology (USST) and a consortium of nine U.K. universities.
We attract students and faculty from all over the world and seek to develop socially responsible and innovative leaders capable of operating in different cultures. Graduates leave with the tools needed to excel in Business and Engineering in a global marketplace that is becoming increasingly diverse and competitive.
SBC offers more flexibility than any other university in China. Students at SBC have a variety of options that allow them to experience an intercontinental study experience whilst gaining a British Degree. SBC offers degree programs that can be completed entirely in Shanghai or split between Shanghai and the UK. If you want to complete a degree entirely in Shanghai then you have four options with SBC.
If you want to start your degree in Shanghai and complete it in the UK then you have a plethora of ‘2+2’ options spread across nine prestigious UK universities.
Away from academia, SBC also offers you a location unmatched in China. SBC is in the centre of the ‘Former French Concession’, the cultural and commercial heart of Shanghai, and all international students are given access to free Chinese lessons throughout their time at SBC.
