Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University

Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is our partnership with Xi’an Jiaotong University (a top 10 university in China). XJTLU is based in the world heritage city of Suzhou, which has a population of four million and is located half an hour from Shanghai by bullet train.

XJTLU is a phenomenal success, having opened with a cohort of just 156 students which has now grown to almost 7,000 students. XJTLU offers degrees in Computing, Maths, Engineering, English, Communication and Media, Architecture, Biological and Chemical Sciences, Business and Civic Design.

Currently over 2,600 undergraduates from XJTLU are completing part of their degree at Liverpool, while the number of postgraduates at Liverpool from XJTLU has almost trebled in the last year, bringing a truly international flavour to our campus.

Our special relationship with XJTLU also provides a distinctive and invaluable opportunity for our students to gain experience in the world’s second largest economy by studying abroad. Replacing a year or a semester in Liverpool with one in China will provide you with huge personal and academic benefits, as well as giving you a head start in the graduate job market. XJTLU also offers a Summer School, a fantastic chance for students of any discipline to experience China and Chinese culture for four weeks during the summer break.

Our Chinese connections are strengthened by the Confucius Institute on campus, which offers our students the opportunity to learn Mandarin.
