Nanjing University (NJU) is a comprehensive national public university administered by the Chinese government. Situated in the old capital city of Nanjing, NJU has a 100-year-old history and enjoys high prestige. It evolved from Sanjiang Normal School (established in 1902), to Liangjiang Normal School, to Nanjing Higher Normal School, to National Southeastern University, to National Fourth Sun Yat-sen University, to National Central University, to National Nanjing University, and finally to Nanjing University in 1950. In the nationwide restructuring of universities and colleges undertaken in 1952, NJU was integrated with Jinling University and retained its name, Nanjing University. The university then moved from Sipailou to Gulou, where Jinling College used to be located.
At present, NJU has three campuses: Xianlin Campus, Gulou Campus, and Pukou Campus. With 28 schools under the university’s direct supervision, the current number of students is 34,580 in total, including 3,153 full-time international students. The university boasts a faculty made up of the most accomplished scholars in China, a large number of outstanding disciplines, and many important national and provincial research platforms.
