NYU Shanghai’s first undergraduate class will graduate on Sunday, May 28, 2017.

Founded in 2013 as the first Sino-US university, NYU Shanghai is at the forefront of a new breed of global higher education institutions.

Our students follow a four-year liberal arts curriculum in Shanghai and spend at least one semester studying at one or more of NYU’s three portal campuses and 11 study-away sites, distributed among the world’s most important cities -- New York, Washington, London, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Prague, Florence, Tel Aviv, Buenos Aires, and Sydney.

Because NYU Shanghai enjoys a double identity as a Chinese university and one of New York University’s three degree-granting campuses, all our students earn, upon graduation, an NYU degree and a Chinese diploma.

NYU Shanghai is the third degree-granting campus in the New York University Global Network, along with New York City and Abu Dhabi. It is dedicated both to world class research and to the teaching of the knowledge, skills, and virtues needed across the cultural landscape of our twenty-first century world.
