Postgraduate Research Opportunities
The HNC opened in 1986 as a one-of-a-kind educational collaboration between The Johns Hopkins University and Nanjing University. Located on the downtown campus of Nanjing University, the center upholds the highest American and Chinese academic standards in the pursuit of educating future leaders for the increasingly complex relations between China and the world community. The Hopkins-Nanjing Center brings together American students and those from other countries (known collectively as "international students") with Chinese students in three graduate studies program options: a one-year certificate, a two-year master of arts in international studies, and a five-semester degree option in Janjing and Washington, D.C.
Established in 1987, the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme is aimed at promoting grass-roots international exchange between Japan and other nations. Every year, the Japanese government invites thousands of young college and university graduates from overseas throughout Japan every year. It is one of the largest exchange programmes in the world. JET Programme participants are employed as one of the following positions: Assistant Language Teacher (ALT), Coordinator for International Relations (CIR), or Sports Exchange Advisor (SEA).
