JNU North American College is supported by a Cooperative International Program involving five Universities and Colleges, namely Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, Northwood University U.S.A, Lambton College, College of North Atlantic, and Jiangnan University, China, which is one of Key universities of “211 Project” directly under the Ministry of Education.


North Americancarries out credit hour administration. Its students are expected to complete their study in four years. Outstanding students are provided with the option of early graduation, if they complete their prescribed credit hours ahead of time. Students are allowed to complete their study at the college within seven years if they fail to complete them as scheduled.


TheCollege combines diploma-level study and degree-level study together in its teaching plan. For the first three academic years, students are registered at overseas cooperative post-secondary institutions and obtain their diplomas upon completion of their diploma-level study. Fourth year students can have their earned credits transferred to, and also be registered at North American overseas cooperative degree-level universities if they meet the minimum requirement in English Language Proficiency. Students can also obtain their Bachelor Degree upon completion of their credit hours as required.


One of North American College’s strengths is that it offers a flexible mode of study. During their four years, students can choose to complete their studies without going abroad. Meanwhile, they enjoy the opportunity of applying in due course to study at our Overseas Cooperative Educational Institutions until their graduation. The credits they have earned while studying in China are transferable to our corresponding Cooperative Educational Institutions. Regardless of where students complete their study, they will obtain the same Diplomas and Degrees.


Thefaculty of North American College is composed of both Chinese and overseas instructors. According to the requirement of the curriculum for each semester, English language courses and some professional courses are taught by overseas instructors from North America, Great Britain and Australia recruited by our Cooperative Educational Institutions, while other courses are taught by faculty members of Jiangnan University. International and Chinese instructors account for approximately 50% of our teaching staff respectively. North American College enjoys some of its own teaching facilities and lab equipment and also shares other related resources with Jiangnan University. All the textbooks used by North American College are in The English language. Our cooperative Partners designate these teaching resources.
