NYU Shanghai: First US China Joint College Established

NYU Shanghai, the first US China Joint College, was established this month.  A joint venture of New York University and Shanghai’s East China Normal University, the school will open its doors next year to some 300 students of which about half will be for Chinese students.  It is hoped that providing choices like this one will reduce the number of Chinese students going overseas for study (estimated at around 340,000 in 2011), some of whom were from renowned high schools who completely skipped China’s college entrance exam, or gaokao.
