From Liverpool to China

Justin Richardson, Careers Adviser at the University of Liverpool, recently visited XJTLU University in Suzhou, China, an international university run in partnership between the University of Liverpool and Xi'an Jiaotong University.

The university has over 2,200 students and many of them do 2+2 courses, which involve two years in China followed by two years in Liverpool.

The main aims of the visit were to develop links with the university and its careers service to see how they could work more effectively with students based both in the UK and China. The trip also incorporated a number of visits to local companies to build a knowledge of the labour market, as well as look at potential placements for Liverpool students.

Justin was also able to visit Shanghai during his time in China and met with the British Council and GTI China. He also had the opportunity to meet with a group of University of Liverpool alumni and develop further useful contacts.

It is hoped that further work can be done with XJTLU University in the future.
