In his remarks, Li Fei introduced the measures WHU had taken to fight against the epidemic and to build the online and offline teaching platform since the outbreak of COVID-19. He appreciated UoD for its efforts to protect the health and safety of exchange students of WHU there in the epidemic situation. Li Fei also pointed out that the program had lasted for 7 years. He said although this year’s epidemic had put a great impact on its teaching and personnel mobility, WHU is willing to work with UoD to overcome difficulties, and to do the best to assist students in completing studies.

Vice-Principal Wendy Alexander from UoD expressed her full confidence in the collaboration with WHU and emphasized on making efforts to increase enrollment in the future. She mentioned that in recent years, the project had made considerable progress in terms of curriculum, students’ experience, and where students go further their studies or work after graduation.

Later at the board meeting, participants from the two universities negotiated on issues of the double degree program for marketing and recruitment strategy, tuition and scholarship, Dundee’s recoverable cost, tax and so on.,The two universities also agreed on having another meeting in the late November to further discuss details.

Due to the impact of the epidemic, the workshop program planned for the summer vacation of 2020 could not be carried out. However, professors and students of both sides have developed many online conversations and seminars, hoping to hold an online exchange workshop in the summer of 2021. After the epidemic, the two sides will continue to promote students’ visits and exchanges.

It is reported that WHU and Dundee University started to jointly organize the architectural studies collaboration program in 2013, which was the first and only undergraduate project in WHU. Since 2009, WHU has been cooperating with UoD in the fields of physics, civil engineering, architecture, mathematics and public health.
