Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU) is an international joint-venture university founded by Xi’an Jiaotong University in China and the University of Liverpool in the UK. As a Sino-foreign cooperative university, it captures the essence of both parent universities and is the largest of its kind approved by China’s Ministry of Education.
The University offers more than 100 degree programmes in the fields of science, engineering, business, finance, architecture, urban planning, language, and culture. All programmes are taught in English. Upon successful completion of the programme, undergraduate students will earn two degrees – an XJTLU degree from China’s Ministry of Education, and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool. Postgraduate students will receive a degree from the University of Liverpool, which is recognised by China’s Ministry of Education. All departments at XJTLU offer PhD programmes, which fulfils XJTLU’s vision to be a research-led international university in China and a Chinese university recognised internationally for its unique features.
Since its establishment in May 2006, XJTLU has contributed to the development of higher education in China by implementing the “Five-Star Model”. XJTLU continuously upgrades its student development system, management and operation mechanisms in response to demands. Over time, XJTLU has won wide recognition for its highly internationalised environment, advanced educational concepts and high-quality talent development.
