Features of XJTLU-JITRI Joint PhD Programme:

  • The degree is awarded by the University of Liverpool, and recognized by China’s Ministry of Education.
  • The programme adopts the international application admission procedure. Applicants do not need to take the Chinese national PhD entrance examination. Application is open through the whole year with flexible entry point at first day of every March, June, September and December.
  • XJTLU provides an international campus environment and 90% of academic staff are recruited internationally. PhD students will also be supervised by respected academics from the University of Liverpool.
  • The University provides travel budgets for students to attend international conferences and travel to University of Liverpool for a research visit from 3 to 6 months.
  • Joint supervisor mechanism: You will be appointed academic supervisors at XJTLU and UoL and an industry supervisor who is recognized by XJTLU Graduate School to mentor and supervise your research project. This creates an innovative education mechanism with the integration of industry, education and research.
  • Participation in the frontier industrial applied research projects: the research project proposals are extracted from the real technical requirements from leading companies. Under the joint guidance of academic and industry supervisors, you will be provided with rich industrial resources, sophisticated scientific research equipment and diverse international academic exchange networks, to carry out your research on high-level and cutting-edge industry topics.
  • The programme provides generous entry scholarships up to 100% tuition waiver. During the period of conducting research projects at JITRI’s research institute and innovation center, you will also receive allowance for living and research.
  • Students who have demonstrated outstanding performance in the period of study, will be given priority to work in JITRI’s research institutes or the cooperated leading companies after completing their studies or be recommended to the top overseas cooperative universities of JITRI for Post-doc position.
