Leicester International Institute, Dalian University of Technology 大连理工大学莱斯特国际学院

UOL Fielding Johnston 3 400x214.jpgA new partnership between the University of Leicester - located in the heart of the United Kingdom - and the Panjin campus of Dalian University of Technology comes to life as the Leicester International Institute, Dalian University of Technology.

This will be known as the Dalian Leicester Institute (DLI), and was formally opened in March 2017 in a ceremony in Panjin.


This Collaborative Education Institute recruited its first cohort of students in September 2017 to degree programmes in Chemistry and Mechanical Engineering, with the Mathematics degree course to be added in September 2019.


Chinese students enrolling in these degree courses will have the opportunity to study at the University of Leicester for part of their degree, giving them access to a wide range of additional faculty and resource within the UK. In the near future UK students from Leicester will also have reciprocal study rights in China ensuring a two-way mobility and cross-cultural understanding.


Dalian 4 400x214.jpgThe courses are taught in English by academic staff from the UK and China, integrating an intensive English Language course within the first year of each four-year degree for Dalian enrolled students. Students will graduate with two degrees: one each from the University of Leicester and Dalian University of Technology, giving them a real edge in the graduate labour market in China, the UK and the rest of the world.


BSc Chemistry

Chemistry is the fundamental cornerstone for many economically important industries today, which means the demand for high quality chemistry graduates is growing. The Leicester course provides students with substantial hands-on, practical work and has been designed to equip graduates with the skills and expertise needed to make new discoveries that can deliver advances in fields such as health and medicine, energy and the environment, materials and technology or food and agriculture.



BEng (Mechanical)

This degree has been designed to develop specific expertise and skills in mechanisms and vibrations, structures, mechanical materials, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics. The degree highlights the way mechanical engineering now relies on powerful computer-aided design, prototyping, manufacturing tools and the use of composite materials.

BSc Mathematics

(From September 2019)

Today Mathematics has become almost a pre-requisite for life given the introduction of big data. Understanding mathematics is integral to designing new aircraft or providing tomorrow's weather forecast, and graduates can find themselves employed in areas as diverse as high energy physics and economic forecasting. Mathematical expertise – including algebra, mathematical computing, topology and actuarial science – will be developed throughout the course with a wide range of specialist modules on offer.
