It is the only international collaborative university in China where all undergraduate (Bachelors) students receive two degrees (dual award) from the Chinese Ministry of Education and from the University of Liverpool.

Founded in 2006, the University now has over 10,000 students on campus with a further 2,500 studying at Liverpool under a 2+2 articulation agreement.
