UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree.
Mathematics underpins much of the modern world and is fundamental to science, technology and the world of business and finance. In the BSc Applied Mathematics programme you will study a core of fundamental mathematical topics and be introduced to a varied range of applications.
By studying mathematics you will develop strong analytical skills, problem-solving abilities and an appreciation of the importance of logical reasoning. You will also learn how mathematical modelling can be used to help analyse real-world problems. These skills are essential in many domains and are highly sought after by employers.
Why should I study applied mathematics at XJTLU?
- A vibrant learning environment of around 400 undergraduate students
- A choice of modules from different application areas of mathematics, including finance, operational research and physics
- XJTLU's location in Suzhou provides you the opportunity to undertake internships at a variety of financial and technological institutions and multinational companies
- Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a UK degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.
