2. Thanks to Shanghai Jiantong University’s powerful subject construction and a world-renowned reputation
Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), a member of C9 league of Elite Universities (something like a US Ivy League), is a key university directly under the administration of the Ministry of Education (MOE) of the People's Republic of China and co-constructed by MOE and Shanghai Municipal Government. Through 117 years' unremitting efforts, SJTU has become a comprehensive, research-oriented, and internationalized top university in China. It is a dreaming institution for Chinese students, but most of those students failed to pursue a further education in SJTU, due to the high entrance exam requirements. However, it is easier for international students to join in.
