All our degree programmes are taught 100 percent in English, with a focus on critical thinking and independent learning – key skills needed in the workplace. At XJTLU you will be taught how to acquire and create new knowledge and apply it to real-world scenarios.

Our graduates’ ambitions and aspirations take them all over the world into jobs and further study. Some progress onto further education at top global institutions (in 2015, 71 percent of graduates planned to continue their studies in world-renowned universities), while others get jobs with major companies around the world (25.7 percent of 2015 graduates found employment with Fortune 500 companies).

We are the result of a historic partnership between Xi’an Jiaotong University and the University of Liverpool and our academic reputation is enhanced by this collaboration. We combine the best of east and west to offer you a unique educational experience that prepares you to be a future leader.

Our location in Suzhou Industrial Park, China’s equivalent of Silicon Valley and a hub of global innovation, means our students have numerous internship opportunities and access to job positions.
