      Bingyu Li, MRes Molecular Bioscience

      Testimonial from Bingyu Li, MRes Molecular Bioscience, student at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU)

      “Biological science is like a magic box full of amazing secrets to be discovered. Successful study takes determination, top facilities and support from quality academic staff. It’s fascinating to learn advanced technologies and gain knowledge from international staff and researchers. This experience is the perfect step for my future career in this field.”

      David Afolabi, MRes Computer Science

      Testimonial from David Afolabi, MRes Computer Science, student at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU)

      “The fast pace of China’s development is fuelled by its technological advancements, and I decided that joining XJTLU will position me at the helm of cutting-edge and innovative technology. I studied computer science and technology at undergraduate level and I have not been disappointed by XJTLU ‘s unique mix of western and eastern educational and cultural styles.”

      Valur Blomsterberg, BA Marketing

      Testimonial from Valur Blomsterberg, BA Marketing, student at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU)

      “Studying in China for the past three years was an extraordinary experience and one that has shaped me in ways I could never have imagined. It has opened my mind to whole new views on friendship, business, relationships, and health. I was fortunate enough to find XJTLU when searching for a degree in Marketing so that I could experience Chinese culture first hand while still receiving a world-class education. XJTLU is truly a unique place that at times made me forget I was half way across the world, but also gave me the opportunity to explore fascinating new things around every corner. However, what made XJTLU truly different from any other university in the world to me is how it combines characteristics of east and west to prepare us as future leaders for the increasingly global environments we face today. Having concluded another chapter in my life, I am now moving on to start my career in marketing for a global company in Beijing; confident that I have the knowledge I need to succeed and continue to be successful no matter where my ambitions take me.”
