Program description

BA students

The BA China studies program provides the opportunity to apply theories from the humanities and social sciences to your understanding and analysis of China, its language, culture and development. The courses are instructed fully in English.

You'll follow one of two pathways that lead to two different careers. If you are interested in teaching Chinese language as a career, you will be directed towards the 'Teaching Chinese as an International Language' pathway.

If your interest lies in the study and application of the social sciences, including teaching, you will be directed towards the 'Contemporary China Studies' pathway.

Students on both pathways study the same modules in years 1 & 2. The modules are different for each pathway in years 3 and 4.

Why China studies?

  • China is arguably the best place to learn about China and Suzhou is one of the most interesting places culturally and economically in China
  • You will be able to tailor the course to your own research interests and expectations
  • The programme includes opportunities for fieldwork around China
  • Earn two degrees: one from Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education; and a degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities.


Graduates have a wide variety of career choices in addition to the opportunity for further graduate study. Typically, students from this program are employed by companies and organizations looking to link with China in fields such as international business, economics, financial services, government, diplomacy, journalism, education, development and NGO activities.
