It is part of the University of Nottingham’s Global University, a world top 1% university (QS Ranking), with co-operation from Zhejiang Wanli Education Group, a key player in the education sector in China. Currently the University has more than 9,000 students and 1,000 staff members from 70 countries and regions worldwide, and the number is still growing.

The Faculty of Science and Engineering is home to nine departments and schools along with 12 research groups across diverse research areas, allowing for multi-disciplinary research and collaborations.
