Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) - Leeds Joint School

The Joint Engineering School, hosted at South West Jiao Tong University is our flagship international partnership. It’s an exemplar of how two high-achieving institutions can collaborate to create new teaching, research and student experience opportunities.  The SWJTU-Leeds Joint School, based in Chengdu, offers a dedicated UK-Chinese engineering curriculum and is the first overseas School to be set up by the University of Leeds. 

Transnational Education (TNE)

The Faculty has a number of further partnership agreements with leading colleges and universities, covering specific degree programmes across each our Schools. These partnerships each have their own characteristics but are united in providing students with a transnational experience. By investing in these partnerships we strive to attract and engage with high-quality students from diverse backgrounds, and equip them to succeed in a globalized workplace.
