What is the Year in China?
The Year in China is the University of Liverpool's exciting new flagship programme allowing undergraduate students, from a huge range of departments, the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes.
XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou, approximately 30 minutes from Shanghai by high-speed train. Our special relationship with XJTLU provides a distinctive and invaluable opportunity for our students to gain experience in the world's second largest economy by studying abroad.
During your time at XJTLU you will be studying:
- 1 module of Chinese language per semester
- 2 modules from the China Studies catalogue. These can be on any topic, e.g. Chinese history, politics or culture
- Depending on your academic department either 1 further module on China Studies or 1 module related to your degree programme in Liverpool
You will live in University approved accommodation. See the XJTLU's accommodation pages for example of the residences available.
