This week 25 students are graduating after completing their degree with a Year in China. Since its establishment in 2016, 65 students have taken part in the Year in China programme and benefited from the University’s joint venture with Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU).
Year in China is the University of Liverpool’s flagship study abroad programme that gives undergraduate students from a wide range of departments the opportunity to spend one academic year at XJTLU.
Gethin Watkins, graduating in Sociology and Social Policy with a Year in China, said: “I’d heard that when you are placed somewhere in a different environment by yourself you discover who you really are. Who I discovered was someone that was more capable and confident than I previously thought.”
A further 90 students are set to take part in the programme this academic year, following XJTLU’s BA China Studies degree classes. Students will take a China studies module related to their degree programme in Liverpool alongside Chinese language modules.
More widely this academic year, 250 students took part in Study Abroad programmes across the globe, gaining a wide-range of employability skills that will enable them to succeed in the international and inter-cultural employment market after graduation.
