Find out how a 2+2 degree with XJTLU and the University of Liverpool will get you ready for a brilliant career.

Going down the 2+2 route and joining us at the University of Liverpool is the natural next step for ambitious XJTLU students. Succeed here, and your chances of securing a Postgraduate position at a Top 100 university will skyrocket.

If you do choose the 2+2 route you: 

  • will study the first two years of your programme at XJTLU in Suzhou
  • will study the final two years here at the University of Liverpool.
  • will receive two degrees – one from XJTLU and one from the University of Liverpool 

Most undergraduate courses at XJTLU are part of the 2+2 programme. You can find out which University of Liverpool course you can study from this website.  

Usually, around 1,700 students from XJTLU make the transfer to Liverpool for their final two years. It might be worth you spending some time seeing what they have to say about their experiences before you make up your own mind. 

To make it as easy as possible for you to make the transfer to the University of Liverpool, you will be supported every step of the way. We will help you: 

  • get your Visa,
  • find the right accommodation
  • make the right connections
  • start planning your future career

Keep browsing this website to find out how.

You can find international tuition fees for all of our undergraduate programmes here.

All students progressing to Liverpool from XJTLU via the 2+2 programme will benefit from a 10% tuition fee award.

We also offer 50 XJTLU Excellence Awards. These awards are allocated to the students that score most highly in Year 2 at XJTLU across the different subject areas, and are based on the number of applications received per programme.

What I like most about the University of Liverpool is the relaxed study environment, my course schedule and the choice of many optional courses. In addition to attending lectures and doing homework we also have the opportunity and time to explore what we enjoy.
