Established in 1902, Nanjing University is one of the major institutions of higher learning in China and is known for its academic excellence. The University’s 36 departments and 55 undergraduate programmes, 106 master’s programmes, 55 doctoral programmes and 43 post-doctoral programmes are organized into ten schools in such areas as humanities, law, international business, foreign languages and international studies, natural sciences, chemistry and chemical engineering, technology, geosciences, life sciences, and medicine.

Over a hundred of those who have studied or taught at the University have been members of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The University’s library houses more than 4 million volumes.
With over 110 research institutes and interdisciplinary research centres—including a Centre for Chinese and American Studies, co-founded with the Johns Hopkins University, and a Sino-German Economic Law Institute, co-founded with Göttingen University—Nanjing University leads China’s universities in the number of entries in such authoritative research literature indexes as SCI, ISR and ISTP. In recent years the University has received over 2,000 students and visiting scholars from more than fifty countries and regions and has hosted sixty international academic conferences.
The University’s School of Foreign Studies is where translation is taught and studied. Its English, French, Russian, German, Spanish and Japanese programmes offer translation tracks in their BA and MA degree choices. The English and French programmes also offer PhD degrees in translation. The School has a translation studies centre and a centre for corpus-based bilingual lexicography. In the past decade, its faculty has been commissioned to undertake over thirty research projects, including several major ones in translation studies.
