Availing of this double degree program, a graduate student from SJTU will be joining YNU Graduate School of Urban Innovation in this October. We hope that YNU Students will also make use of this program in the near future and successfully receive degrees both from YNU and SJTU.
Since the conclusion of the academic exchange agreement in 1982, YNU and SJTU have been expanding the international exchange programs in educational and research activities of various kinds. Signing this agreement on double degree will take the relationship between the two universities to the new stage. We expect that many students will seek and acquire degrees from both universities and become global human resources to play important roles in the world.
