WATCH: President wishes our Chinese staff and students happy new year

10 Feb 2016

Video looks back at the year we hosted China’s President Xi Jinping and looks forward to the Year of the Monkey

President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell wished our Chinese staff and students Gong Xi Fa Cai – that’s Mandarin for happy new year – as they brought in the Year of the Monkey.

Nancy recorded the message, which was shown at our Chinese Students and Scholars Association, noting how we now have 4,000 Chinese students: more than one in ten of our student population.

She also recalled how delighted she was for us to host China’s President Xi Jinping, back in October.
