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:
- Chinese language
- China Studies – these modules can be on any topic, e.g. Chinese history, politics or culture
- Depending on your academic department you may have the opportunity to take modules 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.
