Jiarui has taken part in master classes with Hung-kuan Chang and Yevgeny Sudbin, and at the 6th International Piano Festival in Shanghai. She has won several prizes, including first prize at the 4th Toyama Asian Youth Music Competition in 2009 and third prize at the 3rd Steinway Piano Competition in China in 2008. These successes led to high-profile performances in Hong Kong City Hall, the Beijing People's Liberation Army Opera Hall, Shanghai Oriental Art Centre and Shanghai Hu Luting Hall. Jiarui has also been awarded an Artistic Foundation Award, bestowed by Professor Ende Niu, and a music scholarship from the Shanghai Conservatory when she studied there.

In 2010, Jiarui gave a recital in her hometown of Hangzhou and was awarded the Winifred Christie Scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music, under Professor Christopher Elton. At the Academy she has been awarded the Vivian Langrish Memorial Trust Prize for Accompanist, as well as an RAM Club Prize.
