Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

Founded in 2006, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is the largest international joint venture university in China, a partnership between Xi'an Jiaotong University and the University of Liverpool. As an independent Sino-foreign cooperative university, it captures the essence of both prestigious parent universities and is the first and only one of its kind approved by the Ministry of Education in China.

The University currently offers 90 degree programmes in the fields of science, engineering, business, finance, architecture, urban planning, humanities, mathematics, and computer sciences; all of which are taught in English. Undergraduate students earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a degree from the University of Liverpool. Postgraduate students receive a University of Liverpool degree. All academic departments at XJTLU offer PhD opportunities, helping to fulfil XJTLU’s overarching vision to be a research-led international university in China and a Chinese university recognized internationally.

The breath-taking pace of XJTLU’s growth and international reputation for innovation and high-quality education, talented student body, highly qualified international academic staff, and continued collaboration with its parent universities all speak to what makes this university unique. Being located in Suzhou adds to what makes XJTLU distinctive. Its home in the economic centre of the Suzhou Industrial Park offers the comforts of modernity while still being a short distance away from old town Suzhou, where heritage and tradition can be found down narrow alley ways. It is truly an ideal environment for the 13,000 students and 800 staff who call XJTLU home.
