Student Testimonial


The university offers a broad range of activities aiming to enrich master students’ theoretical and experiential learning and professional development. Trainings, workshops and seminars, covering varieties of themes and topics, both generic and subject-specific, are often offered at both university and school/department levels. Additionally, IBSS programmes offer discipline- specific supplementary modules which will aid to broaden your knowledge in that specific field and enhance your skills. These would include opportunities to work as a teaching assistant, research assistant, or intern at XJTLU. Depending on the programme, field trips and company visits will be organized, and invited talks will be given by the industrial experts and professionals. All these activities will not only support you in your programme study, but also develop your personal and professional skills and enhance your overall career and employability.

During the last semester of my masters, I undertook a work placement at a Chinese-German company which gave me valuable work experience and the opportunity to apply project management knowledge, such as stakeholder management and how to implement projects in a real-life, fast-moving environment. I was also able to apply some of the intercultural and multilingual skills in English and Chinese I developed during my studies.
