Karoline Hecker
Deputy Director of Learning Technologies, The Library
I developed a keen interest in a career in transnational higher education as well as in moving to Asia. UNNC met all my criteria: an educational philosophy I was familiar with, the opportunity to use most of my existing skills and the chance for personal growth. It also offered the ability to work in English without immediate pressure to become fluent in Mandarin and the opportunity to explore the cultural heritage of the world's oldest civilization at my doorstep.
