The SWJTU-Leeds Joint School, approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education, is a partnership between the University of Leeds and Southwest Jiaotong University to provide high-achieving students in China with the opportunity to benefit from an outstanding education and an exceptional student experience.
The SWJTU-Leeds Joint School offers a unique UK-Chinese engineering curriculum and is the first overseas school to be set up by the University of Leeds.
Four undergraduate degree programmes are offered by the Joint School:
- BSc Computer Science
- BEng Civil Engineering with Transport
- BEng Electronic and Electrical Engineering
- BEng Mechanical Engineering
Although many students will spend the whole of their four-year courses in Chengdu, where they will be given intensive language education, some students will study for one or more years in Leeds. Teaching is delivered by a combination of Leeds, SWJTU and newly recruited Joint School staff.
