XJTLU International Summer Programme

XJTLU International Summer Programme

Programme Overview

The XJTLU International Summer Programme provides students with a unique opportunity to enhance their knowledge and expand cultural awareness through its high-quality academic platform. The programme offers academically rigorous short courses to domestic and international students during summer and winter vacation.

Upon completion of the programme, students will obtain valuable knowledge and corresponding course credits, which can be applied to academic degrees and are beneficial for long-term career development. The amount of course credits earned during the programme can be deducted from the total credits required for graduation from American universities, reducing the time students need to earn their degree.

The programme courses cover a wide range of subjects, including but not limited to social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, mathematics, business, economics, and more.

The programme is suitable for a diverse range of students, including students currently enrolled in universities abroad, students currently enrolled in international high school programmes, as well as students enrolled in Chinese high schools and universities but wish to experience international level university courses.
