XJTLU makes China accessible for international exchange students no matter your study interest. With curriculum all taught in English, study areas include sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, architecture and design, communications, media, business, humanities and social sciences – all combined with Chinese language and in-depth study of China, taught by some of Asia’s foremost experts.


You’ll have the opportunity to explore China’s vast and varied landscapes, ancient cultures and dynamic economic development from a prime location in the heart of China’s booming eastern corridor.


Study in English and learn Chinese. With both languages you are globally mobile and highly employable.


China represents a world of ideas and values built on one of the world’s oldest cultures. You’ll gain a new perspective on your own life and of those around you.


Studying abroad is fun! You’ll have new experiences and make friendships in China and with people from across the globe that will last a lifetime.


Develop an understanding of the world’s second largest economy and largest consumer market.


Blending one of Asia’s leading research and innovation hubs, a quirky old town with canals and willow-filled lanes, and a glitzy new town, Suzhou is a curious mix of the ancient and the hypermodern. Connected by bullet train to the centre of Shanghai and Beijing you will have a chance to experience the pulsing heart of east Asia.

Students normally study 10-20 credits per semester. Choose your modules (also known as classes or courses at other universities) in order of preference when you submit your selections to XJTLU. Please look at our module catalogue (please notice the information in the link might subject to change according to XJTLU timetable yearly updates) and specifications. Your module selections should be approved by your home university before you submit them to XJTLU. An exchange student can study a maximum of one Chinese Language module (CLT module) per semester. Physical Education (PHE) modules are not available for exchange students.

Exchange students will mainly study in SIP main campus. But we have another campus in Taicang (TC), which is 1.5 hours one way drive from Suzhou main campus. Students who want to study in Taicang can only select courses within Taicang.

You should apply for more modules than you need (we strongly recommend 40 credits per semester), in case we are unable to confirm your first choice because of timetabling clashes and/or module changes.


The first number in the module code refers to the undergraduate level at XJTLU (0, 1, 2, and 3). Undergraduate degree courses at XJTLU are four years with general education covered in level zero. Degree-specific content is taught at levels one, two and three according to the typical three-year model in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Degree programmes

Level 0 Year 1
Level 1 Year 1 Year 2
Level 2 Year 2 Year 3
Level 3 Year 3 Year 4
Level 4 Master Master

Note: The first number for masters module codes is four. The first number for non-credit-bearing modules is nine. Level 0 modules are not available for exchange students. Masters modules are not available for undergraduate students.


Exchange students should apply through their home institution’s study abroad office. The home university will then nominate students to XJTLU. After receiving the list of nominated students, XJTLU will invite each student to complete an application form.

Deadlines for autumn semester start

For more information on the visa application process.


Once exchange students have accepted the offer letters, the XJTLU Global team will book accommodation for students.

For more information about accommodation.


Exchange students pay tuition fees as normal to their home institution. (some partners will have separate pay agreement with us, which means student will pay to XJTLU by group )


Exchange students should first contact their university’s study abroad office. Additional questions can be addressed to the XJTLU Study Abroad Office at studyabroad@xjtlu.edu.cn.

The experiences I had whilst living, studying and travelling in China have greatly enriched my life and placed me in a stronger position for pursuing future employment.
