Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University About Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University-International Collaborative University

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool Universitys  (XJTLU) is a truly unique institution, jointly founded by Xi'an Jiaotong University and the University of Liverpool. It is the largest international collaborative university in China and the only one where all 26 undergraduate (Bachelor's) students dual ward degrees from the Chinese Ministry of Education and from the University of Liverpool. XJTLU’s 12 Masters programmes are provided by the University of Liverpool.

The University is independent, but draws for guidance and experience upon its two parent universities, both of which are over one hundred years old and highly respected international pioneers. We now have nearly 6,000 students on campus with an additional 1,600 now completing their degree at The University of Liverpool through a ‘2+2’ study route agreement.

The academic performance of XJTLU students is exceptional. Over 92% of our graduates are now in employment or further study.


You are the future entrepreneur, scientist, architect, engineer, diplomat, researcher, educator or executive in our increasingly global environment. You have a desire to understand other cultures and become a citizen of the world. We want you. At XJTLU you will find an international community of learners in the heart of China’s ongoing economic success story and opportunities found nowhere else on Earth. Our global community of more than 10,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students (2,000 of whom are registered at the University of Liverpool), and 450 academic staff from 50 countries is continually growing, offering you the chance to make connections with people from across the world.


Collaboration is essential to the work we do. It powers our research, drives our programme development, creates opportunities for our students and brings hands-on experience to our staff and students.

Across our campus, academic staff are forging strong and meaningful partnerships with other education institutions, industry professionals and the local community. We have established partnerships with a number of organisations both in China and abroad, carrying out academic exchanges with numerous research institutes. Our partners are specialised organisations and influential institutions from a variety of fields.


In addition to the special relationships with our parent universities, Xi’an Jiaotong University and the University of Liverpool, we work with an ever-expanding network of universities across the world. This network provides our students with opportunities to study abroad at partner universities including Trinity College Dublin and the University of Groningen. Degree programmes such as the Global Executive Series in Finance and Strategic Leadership, delivered in collaboration with EADA, one of Europe’s most prestigious business schools, ensure our students are opened to new ways of thinking and develop global networks of contacts. Our academic staff routinely collaborate with external partners on research and academic exchange working with institutions in China and around the world.


We work with some of China and the world’s largest companies to carry out research projects, and provide student internships, external mentors and graduate employment opportunities. Our business school’s collaboration with the business community enhances our growing reputation for meaningful engagement that contributes to social change.
