WELCOME TO NANJING AGRICULTURAL UNIVERSITY
Thank you for your interest in Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU). One of China’s oldest universities, NAU was among the original pioneers of Chinese Agricultural Higher Education and remains at the forefront of the sector today.

Our impressive infrastructure includes several national key laboratories and technological engineering centres that offer state-of-the-art facilities for committed researchers. We have built cooperative relationships with 150 institutions in more than 30 countries, creating various knowledge sharing platforms along the way. This international transition is at the center of our ambitious development plans, which is why we have designated 2014 our Year of Internationalization.
As part of this initiative, we continue to welcome teaching and research talents from all over the world, providing 100 positions each year. I would like to personally invite people from different countries and cultures to join us here at NAU.
