Nanjing University (NJU)
Location: Nanjing
Year Established: 1902
Student Population: 50,000 (2,700 international students)
Nanjing University, also known as Nanking, is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutes of higher learning in China. It is a national university that comes under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education.
Nanjing University offers a comprehensive range of subjects in humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, technological sciences, life sciences, modern engineering and management. It is a member of China’s Ivy League equivalent, the C9 League.
In 1955, it founded The Institute for International Studies, which currently has an enrollment of 1,700 students. 
Unique Characteristics
In 1921, Nanjing University established the first department of Western literature among Chinese universities. Two years later the department was merged with the English department and other faculties including French and German and renamed the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature, later known as the School of Foreign Studies. The China Association for the Study of American Literature (CASAL) is located at Nanjing University.
Located in the lower Yangtze River basin, Nanjing has long been one of China’s most important cities. It has been the capital of six different Chinese Dynasties since the year 3 AD and is recognised as one of the four Great Ancient Capitals of China. Today, Nanjing is a sprawling city but the atmosphere is relaxed. It boasts beautiful parks, landscapes and rivers, as well as its rich history.
