We are a pioneering, international joint venture university located in the city of Suzhou on China’s east coast. We are proud of our focus on research-led learning inherited from our parent institutions, the University of Liverpool and Xi’an Jiaotong University.

Xi’an Jiaotong University and the University of Liverpool were far ahead of the curve in terms of the visioning of this unique partnership.
