We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is an international joint venture university founded by Xi’an Jiaotong University in China and the University of Liverpool in the United Kingdom. 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 approximately 90 degree programmes in the fields of science, engineering, business, finance, architecture, urban planning, language, culture and all are taught in English except for general and basic courses. Undergraduate students earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool. Postgraduate students receive a University of Liverpool degree that is recognised by the Ministry of Education. All academic departments at XJTLU offer PhD opportunities, which help to fulfill XJTLU’s vision of “becoming a research-led international university in China and a Chinese university recognised internationally for its unique features”.
Located in Suzhou, a city that has been known in China as ‘paradise on the earth’ since ancient times, XJTLU enjoys a beautiful environment where there is a harmonious coexistence between the city’s rich cultural traditions and its rapid economic development. Suzhou is one of the most developed cities in China. Suzhou Industrial Park, China’s equivalent of Silicon Valley and a hub of global innovation, houses a large cluster of Fortune 500 companies, transnational enterprises and R&D centres, not only providing favourable conditions for XJTLU’s ongoing development but also numerous internship and job opportunities for XJTLU students.
XJTLU upholds the same high standards as world-famous universities in hiring academic staff members. It currently has around 600 academic staff, many of whom hold foreign nationality. All subject staff have to hold a doctorate degree from a well-known university and have rich teaching and research experience. XJTLU cooperates with international head hunting companies to hire top academic talent from all over the world. The University has over 13,000 registered students, including those who are completing study at the University of Liverpool.
XJTLU is new, innovative, exciting. XJTLU is growing rapidly, constructing new research laboratories with state-of- the-art facilities, and forging link with industry and universities worldwide.
