Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) is a higher education institute in China, which enjoys a long history and a world-renowned reputation. Through 125 years of unrelenting effort, SJTU has become a comprehensive and research-oriented top international university in China. Global strategy stands as one of the major initiatives of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In 2019, we sent over 2000 students to overseas universities, and meanwhile, we hosted more than 3800 non-degree international students from over 100 countries. The academic collaboration and students exchange will certainly promote the friendship between other excellent universities all over the world and us, and benefit students in their academic excellence as well as global vision.
Exchange agreements allow international students to take courses at SJTU for a or year while paying tuition at their home institution, with the potential to transfer course credit back to their home institutions. Each year, SJTU welcomes more than 1000 exchange students from around the world. Our formal exchange agreements allow students to take undergraduate or graduate coursework at SJTU, which often can be transferred back to their degree at their home institution.

A wide range of courses in various disciplines are provided, including Public Policy and City Governance, Practice in Restoring Chinese Historical Buildings, Digital Innovations and Smart Construction, and Machine Intelligence and Robotics, each of which will be accompanied by Chinese language courses.
In addition to academic lectures, local excursions, cultural activities, and field trips are also available for International students.

This is a chance to experience Chinese culture firsthand and to make friends from China and all around the world.
