  • Established in 1896, XJTU belongs to the C9 League, the alliance of nine elite universities in mainland China, analogous to the Ivy League.
  • A comprehensive research-oriented university with a major emphasis on the fields of science and engineering. It offers 10 branches of learning, including science, engineering, medicine, economics, management, humanities, law, philosophy, education and art.
  • Located in Xi’an, one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization.
  • Full of history, Xi’an is home to numerous historical sites and attractions. Some of the top sights to see in Xi’an includes the Army of Terracotta Warriors, the Ming Dynasty City Wall, and the Big Goose Pagoda.

Students who are Canadian citizens applying for this program are encouraged to apply for funding through the Canada Learning Initiative in China (CLIC) program.

Students applying for this exchange who are not Canadian citizens have other funding options open to them.

Why don't you combine your participation in this exchange with participation in an internship as well?  We could send you on a TusStar Internship or an IWE internship in Hong Kong before or after your exchange.  If you are interested in going out on two programs please contact Michal Guzowski at michal.guzowski@ualberta.ca for more details.
