Thoughts on the Department and XJTLU

XJTLU is an amazingly inclusive and supportive environment with a strong sense of community. The Department of China Studies is home to a vibrant multidisciplinary group of scholars with expertise spanning humanities and social sciences. It is a very pleasant and positive place to work!

Words to colleagues and students

Make the most out of everything that XJTLU provides! Don't be scared to get involved in new things.
