Live and study in Suzhou at the Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University (XJTLU) in a city where you will be surrounded by modern technology, a rich history, and ancient culture. At XJTLU, all courses are taught in English, and fields of study include the sciences, technology, engineering, mathematics, architecture and design, communications, media, business, humanities, and social sciences—all combined with the Chinese language and in-depth study of China, taught by some of Asia’s foremost experts. You will also have practical learning opportunities for a more immersive experience during the semester.
Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University is an international joint university based in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China. Founded in 2006 through a partnership between the University of Liverpool and Xi’an Jiaotong University, it is the first Sino-British joint venture between research-led universities.
The university, which primarily focuses on science, technology, engineering, architecture, and business with a secondary focus on English, is recognized by the Chinese Ministry of Education as a non-profit educational institution.
XJLTU offers over 1000 courses in English including disciplines from 50 departments. You can take a minimum of 10 XJTLU credits (about two courses) and a maximum of 25 XJTLU credits (about 5 courses). On average, each XJTLU course is about 5 credits (similar to 3 U.S. university credits). Some modules require the previous study in the subject or in related disciplines.
To ensure smooth credit transfer after the program, APA suggests that you have your course selections approved by your home university before registering for them. Syllabi can be provided in advance upon request.
