Formed in 2006, the first cohort of students graduated in August 2010. The University now has over 10,000 students studying on campus. The language of instruction is English. XJTLU aims to become truly research-led, and has recently committed significant investment into research development and the expansion of PhD student numbers on campus.
Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), in partnership with the Taicang City Government, is now planning to open a brand new XJTLU campus in the city of Taicang. Situated around 50 kilometers from both Shanghai and Suzhou, the campus is expected to welcome its first student intake in Sept 2020 with anticipated growth to a community of 6,000 students by 2025. Taicang campus will support a model known as “Syntegrative Education”, tailoring its activities to the needs of future industry and enterprise, and also include a unique Entrepreneurs College as part of its mission to promote and enable innovative educational reformation. This new initiative will see students benefit from a high calibre, international higher education experience with the opportunity to study both in China and in the UK. In addition, new and innovative links will be formed between XJTLU, industry and the local community in Taicang, supporting sustainable development and opening up opportunities for students to spend time working with and within the city’s expanding industrial base. Taicang campus will also reflect XJTLU’s wider ambitions, to test the new concept of a university and campus for the future, to enhance its reputation for research; and to provide a model for social service.
The Taicang Project is expected to take two years and nine months: started in January 2018 and expected to be completed in September 2020 when the campus will be officially open.
