Since being established, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University has adhered to the principle of open education. XJTLU has established cooperative relations and carried out academic exchanges with many research institutions from the Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and across the globe. All these partners have good reputations, influential research units and world-class teaching practices.

In recent years, to consolidate and maintain cooperation with other universities, XJTLU has continued to expand the scale of international education in line with international standards.

XJTLU is committed to being a research-led international university in China and a Chinese university recognised internationally for its unique features in learning and teaching, research, social service, and education management. The University employs a large number of internationally renowned scholars and foreign experts as honorary professors and visiting professors. In addition, every year, XJTLU carries out research cooperation with foreign institutions, and participates in further studies and academic conferences.

As an emerging international university, XJTLU has a highly internationalised teaching and research team, modern teaching and research facilities, and high-quality teacher-student resources. On the basis of the resource advantages of XJTLU and its two parent institutions, the University of Liverpool in the UK and Xi’an Jiaotong University in China, we will establish strategic alliances with enterprises and all social sectors and carry out extensive cooperation in various fields.

Our role in Suzhou

We have been part of eastern China’s development into one of the world’s economic powerhouses. Our strategic location in the Suzhou Dushu Lake Science and Education Innovation District of Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) means we have unrivalled business connections and opportunities for industry collaboration.

Suzhou Industrial Park has attracted more than 5,000 foreign investment projects, and utilised 32.3 billion USD of foreign investment. Ninety-two Fortune 500 enterprises have invested in 156 projects and 1,014 financial institutions, and introduced over 10,000 technological and innovative enterprises in SIP, which is becoming one of the most dynamic business centres in the world.

SIP has established a “2+3+1” industrial system, consisting of two leading industries (namely new-generation information technology and high-end equipment manufacturing), three emerging industries (biomedicine, nanotechnology application, and artificial intelligence), and one modern service industry.

In the future, XJTLU plans to enhance the basic scientific research strength of SIP through applied research in various disciplines. Together with SIP, we aim to build a scientific and technological innovation platform that will attract more research talent and show the potential of local research to the world.

The development of XJTLU has been greatly supported by Dushu Lake Science and Education Innovation District, Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiangsu Education Department and The Ministry of Education. In the future, with the care and support of all schools and academies, XJTLU will make continuous efforts to become a research-led international university.

Since its establishment, XJTLU has grown into a research-led university that has received accolades for its innovative education model, high-quality student-focused teaching, infrastructure and buildings, educational reform and more.

XJTLU is proud to have outstanding graduates that are employed in various industries both at home and abroad. The rapid development of the university has been widely recognised and praised by employers and the community, and its social influence continues to expand.
