How to Apply

Entry requirements
There is one entry point to the programmes every year. To gain admission you must achieve Band 1 scores in the University Entrance Examination (Gaokao) and a minimum of 75% of your total English marks in the Gaokao.

You will be selected subject to any capacity limitations for the Programme. If there is over demand then you will be selected based upon your comparative ability for a capped number of places. Where necessary, further selection will be achieved through an assessment of your skills, knowledge and attributes as demonstrated in your application.

The tuition fee for the Joint School, when studying at the campus in Chengdu, is 62,000 RMB per annum. The fee is higher than SWJTU’s typical fee because teaching is delivered in English with one-third of the programme delivered by academic staff from Leeds. Also, when you have successfully completed your four-year undergraduate programme, you will be awarded a degree from the University of Leeds and a degree from SWJTU.

The tuition fee for studying at the University of Leeds will be set at the international fee rate for engineering minus a 10% special fee reduction, for students from the Joint School, for each year of study.
