About

Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU)
 
Location: Shanghai
Year Established: 1896
Student Population: 20,700

About
SJTU Is a public university located in Shanghai, China. Established in 1896 by an Imperial edict issued by the Guangxu Emperor, it is renowned as one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China.

Highlights
SJTU is embarking on a major program to attract international students, and it’s worth persevering through the bureaucracy to get there. SJTU is among the most efficient of Chinese universities in implementing English language courses, but it also encourages overseas students to study Chinese. It originally started as a communications university – the word “jiaotong” actually translates into “communication” ­– before its massive expansion.

Unique Characteristics
As of December 2013, SJTU had 28 schools and departments, 26 directly affiliated institutions, and 12 affiliated hospitals. It has 64 undergraduate programs covering nine major disciplines: economics, law, literature, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, management and arts.  Like many major universities in China, in recent years it has strengthened its efforts to attract international students, especially in the social sciences, arts and business, mainly at undergraduate level.
 
Location
Shanghai is a huge city evoking history, glamour and mystique. It is famous for its architecture, food, shopping and commerce. On first glance it looks like a modern metropolis of skyscrapers and megamalls. But there are hundreds of bustling markets, funky shops and possibly the best nightlife scene in China.
