Prof. Tang pointed out that it was the efforts of both sides that had contributed to the eight years of consistent development of the program. Even throughout the challenging situations during the COVID-19 pandemic, the two universities have continued to maintain close contact and worked together across time and space to explore new and effective teaching modes. Tang hoped that the two universities would educate more high-level talents with a global vision and extend the program model in the future.

Wendy Alexander, vice principal of the University of Dundee, delivered her gratitude to the board, staff and students of WHU for their support and understanding. She was delighted to see that the program had newly enrolled 38 students this year and 10 students had been sent to study at the University of Dundee. She was deeply impressed by the photographs of the new building of the School of Urban Design and said that the University of Dundee would always be willing to provide more sophisticated teaching resources to strengthen the partnership with WHU.

In the following sessions, the two universities discussed and agreed upon a number of matters related to student enrollment, school fees, scholarships, and teacher training projects.

In 2013, Wuhan University and the University of Dundee set up the Sino-British double degree program, which remains the first and the only program for undergraduate students of its kind. This July, the two universities applied to the Ministry of Education to continue this program and agreed to extend their cooperation in scientific research, graduate student education and other areas.
