Features of XJTLU

  • Student body—XJTLU students are recruited from every province in China in the first tier of the national university entrance examination (Gao Kao), and there is a growing population of gifted international students. 90% of undergraduates go on to study at international universities in the USA, UK, and other overseas locations, with many attending world-leading institutions.
  • International students—International student enrolment on campus is currently more than 1,300, and the aim is to increase these numbers so that 10 percent of all students will be from outside China.
  • Articulation arrangements—Most undergraduate programmes offer students the opportunity to articulate to the University of Liverpool under a ‘2+2’ agreement, should they wish.
  • Accreditation and validation—The University of Liverpool provides XJTLU with institutional accreditation and validates XJTLU’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes. XJTLU also has undergraduate degree awarding powers from the Chinese Ministry of Education, and its UK postgraduate degrees are recognized for delivery in China.
  • Academic development—There are currently 12 academic departments and four teaching centres, teaching into 43 undergraduate and 35 postgraduate programmes. The University’s 10-year plan anticipates future growth, projecting a student population of 18,000 students on the SIP Campus.
  • Campus development—The campus development programme has delivered state-of-the-art teaching, laboratory, research, and support facilities on two campuses next to each other in SIP. There is a well-equipped University Library in the Central Building which also houses all of the university’s administrative offices.
