"I was introduced to XJTLU by one of my classmates in high school. After searching online, I found out there is an architecture available in this university and it seemed very promising. I was admitted through China's University Entrance Examination (Gaokao) for students from Hongkong, Macau and Taiwan. During my studies I got to communicate my ideas and theories with professors from varying cultural and social background. At the beginning I had to adjust myself in terms of language usage, logic and focuses but I quickly overcame these issues. XJTLU offers great support such as personal one-on-one tutorials with our professors, we exhibited our work and even had the opportunity to go on a study trip in Shanxi (China) with exchange students from the University of Liverpool. In general, I believe XJTLU is unique because of its effort to introduce British education here in China, which provides alternative perspectives to Chinese culture and also general disciplines."
