We have two partner schools in China where students can study math faculty courses. Please select below for further information:

 

Tsinghua University


Why should I study here?

  • Tsinghua University is considered to be the #1 university in China and #17 around the world (QS 2022). Canadian citizens and non-Chinese nationals can study here if they have sufficient language skills or fluency in Mandarin. 
  • Located in northwest Beijing, in the Haidian district which was created specifically for universities and other academic institutes.
  • The campus is located on the former site of Qing Dynasty royal gardens and retains Chinese-style landscaping. Due to the American influence in its history, Tsinghua also has many Western-style buildings. The campus is known for its observatory, the Old Gate and Gong Zi Ting. 

What majors/plans would be a good fit for this school? 

Students can find appropriate math courses in the Department of Computer Science and Technology within the School of Information Science and Technology as well as the Department of Mathematical Sciences in the School of Sciences.

General information 

Please review the Waterloo Passport page for this school.  

Transfer credit information 

Courses at Tsinghua are typically 2 or 3 credits. 15 credits at Tsinghua equals 2.5 units at Waterloo.

Xi’an Jiaotong- Liverpool University (XJTLU)


Why should I study here?

  • An international joint university founded by Xi'an Jiaotong University (China) and the University of Liverpool (United Kingdom), most of the courses are offered in English.

  • Located in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China which is about 30 minutes by high-speed train from Shanghai. The campus is located in Suzhou Industrial Park which is considered China's equivalent of Silicon Valley.

  • The city of Suzhou is known for its canals, stone bridges and meticulously designed gardens 

What majors/plans would be a good fit for this school? 

Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool offers programs in Actuarial Science, Applied Mathematics, Applied Statistics, Bioinformatics, Business Administration, Computer Science and Technology, Financial Mathematics, Information and Computing Science and Information Management and Information Systems so students may be able to find equivalent courses in those areas.

General information 

Please review the Waterloo Passport page for this school.  

Transfer credit information 

To earn 2.5 units of transfer credit at Waterloo, you will need to complete 40 credits at this school. If you take 4 courses at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool, then you will receive the course equivalency for each course and then your fifth credit will be MISC 2xx to account for the fact you can’t take 5 courses at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool. MISC 2xx can be used as a non-math course or elective. If you take less than 4 courses, then you will only receive the credit for the courses you take. 

Courses taken and equivalents 

The agreement with Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University was signed in 2021 so we don't have any current course equivalencies. If you’re matched to this school, then you can follow the course approval process to obtain course equivalencies.
