A student studying abroad with Southwest Jiaotong University: Chengdu - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
I learned much about myself. I was able to mature away from home, come to terms with my reasons for obtaining a solid education, and had the opportunity to learn Chinese and meet tons of amazing people. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review

In so many ways. Beyond becoming apart of the Chinese cultural environment and greatly increasing my Chinese speaking abilities, I got close to people I would never have met, became interested in places I would never have thought and did things I never could have done at home. - Southwest Jiaotong University View Entire Review
Phenomenal, just don't expect much help from the school. If you can study hard on your own, you will love the program. - Southwest Jiaotong University View Entire Review

About

Southwest Jiaotong University (SWJTU) was founded in 1896 and is one of China’s oldest higher education institutions. Known as the cradle of China’s railway engineers and “the Cornell of the East”, SWJTU is the birthplace of China’s modern education in transportation, mining & metallurgy and civil engineering. Through its history, the university has adopted different names such as “Imperial Chinese Railway College at Shanhaiguan by Beiyang Railway Bureau”, “Tangshan Jiaotong University” and “Tangshan Institute of Railway”.
Since its establishment over 100 years ago, SWJTU has weathered storms amongst China’s warring past. It has undergone 18 relocations and despite the difficulties has sustained its belief in educating the young for the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. It upholds the mission of focused education in culture and transport, spreads the spirit of educating talents to breathe new life into the Chinese nation and of unremitting self-improvement, and maintains the tradition of academic excellence and meticulous planning and research. Thus far, the number of graduates from the university has reached nearly 300,000.
