Xi Liang

DPhil Student

I have broad experience which equips me excellently for my studies. I have been a student in the USA as well as in China and the UK, and my subjects of study span international business to bilingual and multicultural education.

I have had a range of working experience in educational consulting and the English language teaching, and is an active member of the community, helping with many of activities in and out the universities.

In my DPhil programme, I am conducting a research with the working title—China on the Road: an explanatory research on international higher education partnership under the framework of OBOR initiative. My area of doctoral study, the impact of the ‘One Belt One Road’ (OBOR) initiative on higher education in China due to my background and home town, as well as my wish to support the development and quality of higher education in China’s western provinces. As a native of China’s most economically disadvantaged area in the Northwest, but one with huge potential under the OBOR initiative, I have a commitment to assisting the educational development in my home country. My study has the potential to make a major contribution, not just in the academic sphere, but also will be of great benefit nationally and internationally, as China embarks on this new project to make a major world contribution and play a prominent role through the OBOR initiative.
