"The past academic year saw our University operating against a backdrop of unprecedented challenges, posed especially by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, our community has done a tremendous job in responding to them, and I feel grateful to everyone in the University for all they have done. It makes me even more proud to see the progress made towards meeting our vision and mission, and our achievements in changing the world for the better.
To fulfil our strategic goals in education and student experience, we have focused on providing our students with an internationally-based, high-quality education that unlocks their potential and prepares them with the skills they need to make an impact. While the majority of our overseas students returned to campus during the year to resume face-to-face teaching, we have continued to invest in digital teaching and learning so that our students can fully embrace the opportunities presented by thisincreasingly digital world.
We continue to be the first and only Sino-foreign university to be recognised at the national level for both programmes and moduleawards. Our students' satisfaction with teaching and learning continues to rise according to the results from the Nottingham Student Experience Survey, and students' satisfaction with our services, facilities and campus environment maintains a leading position in the Asia benchmark group and in the top tier globally. This is testament to the hard work of our staff in developing the student experience and making our campus an inspiring learning environment..." *
